Never will forget the hours you spent at Boals Garage asking Ernie a million questions within the first hour. Won't be the same without you in that chair. Ernie also wanted to say he will never forget the childhood days when you had lights all over your bicycle.

I miss the hours we spent with you and snickers at Clearfield Auto Parts.
We listened to lots of stories and talked about the fire company.
Rest in Peace old friend, God has you now.

I will miss you old friend.

You could Chauffeur, Third Ward’s 1970 CF Mack, with the best of them. Driving all 237 Maxidyne horsepower to the hilt and enjoying every minute of it.

I am sure you are jamming gears and tooling around on a cloud.

You have been reunited with your Loving wife Judy.
