I will never forget all you've taught me through the year of me being at McDonald's. I loved listening to your stories about your boat and your fishing adventures. You were a very generous kind hearted man. You will be missed everyday. Without a doubt It will take awhile to adjust without hearing you ask where are the customers. My condolences to you wife, kids, grandkids, and the rest for your family & friends.
