A wonderful person who our family often called upon for help. And even better for us, his daughter JoAnn who as a teen would be enlisted by us to herd our children. I often reflected on those good times when we drove past their house on Russells Millls Road.

We are sad to loose one of our oldest and dearest friends. We got married the same year and each raised five children. We enjoyed many good times. We enjoyed sharing breakfast together and visits. You are gone friend but never forgotten.
