Dad was a car enthusiast. Called his Buick Electra 225 "deuce and a quarter." Was with me when I bought every car up to and including my 1975 Monte Carlo. In the winter when I had 1973 Opel GT he'd go out with pans of hot water to unfreeze the hidden headlights because they were manual lever opening and hard for me to do. A great father. A great man.

I will always remember how me and my friends used to bring our records over to your house so we could hear them on the best stereo system in Roseville. You could hear them a couple of blocks away. I was so lucky to have worked with you for over thirty years. I always enjoyed the talks we would have every morning discussing the plans of the day and the personal issues we would share with one another. It wasn't the same after you were gone. Then came our final times together. Even though we were doing things we would have never thought we would be doing I had the chance to see you and be with you every day all the way till the end. I will never forget you!! Love Mickey

A lifetime of memories I am lucky to have and will always have of my grandfather. A lot of the things I have and enjoy today began with enjoying his love for it when I was a child. You will be forever remembered and missed.

I love you Dad! Thanks for my wonderful childhood! We always had so much fun! I was truly blessed to be able to work with you every day for many years! I will always remember you sitting at your desk and listening to your radio and tapping your leg when listening to Rod Stewart's "Forever Young". And sending me George Harrison's "My Sweet Lord" record to me when I was living in Rhode Island cause you knew I loved that song. And sending me and Mickey a surprise gift of our first color TV to Winthrop, MA. And our tailgating at the Michigan State football games. So many many special memories of you Dad! You were the best! I will miss you dearly. You were my little buddy.
