July 26, 2018
I only knew him a short time, but he was quite a gentleman. He was very kind to everyone he met He was a friend to all he engaged. Loved by his children, grandchildren, and yes, great grandchildren. He had the unique skill to make all people he met smile. He especially was able to enjoy children, and make them laugh. He was a great example to his family, both young and old. He will be greatly missed and long remembered by all who knew him.
