Dearest Uncle Dutch, a most kind man. Full of joy and laughter. Yes, always loved to fish. In the early days, he was ready for his next adventure. Dutch is greatly loved! He is already missed.
God's love and grace always.

Early spring of 1982 Dutchie and Marilynn came through Hot Springs, AR. Warren and I were newlyweds and were so happy they stopped to visit. The main attraction in Hot Springs at that time was Oaklawn Race Track. As a special treat Dutchie paid for all of us to go watch the horse races. Dutchie, Warren and I all bet on the same horse for the daily double and were thrilled when we won both of our races. After his big win Dutchie would literally skip up to the pay out window to receive his winnings. He won several times that day and each time watching him skip to the window would bring pure joy to my heart but that was just Uncle Dutchie.

I have the fondest memories of riding with Dutch, in his old but cared for truck, to get supplies for our plumbing issues at the house I grew up in. He was cheerful and funny. His kindness was evident upon first meeting. I was privileged to interview Dutch and his relatives for an assignment for an Appalachian Studies certifate at Sinclair College. I have tape recordings of Dutch telling stories about West Virginia if family wants a copy. Much love to his family and special blessings to his beloved dog, Abby. May God provide mercy and comfort to you, dear Dutch...with respect and admiration. (Marilyn’s cousin)

Oh how I love my Uncle Dutchie! One of my fondest memories as a small child is when he took us to the park in Reedsville, of course we rode in the back of Aunt Mary Lou's El Camino. He took us there to fly these giant white styrofoam airplanes he brought for us to play with at the family reunion. Then of course we got to go to the DQ and get ice cream cones. I dont think Uncle Dutch ever went anywhere without his fishing poles, he sure loved to fish. Him and Robbie were always together during Robbies teenage year. Oh the memories. Uncle Dutchie, you will be greatly missed. I am so happy that you are with all your brothers and grandma and grandma - what a reunion you are all having! I love you so much RIP.

When Dad Retired from the Air Force Dutch and Lorain "Petitioned" hard for the family to Retire there in Fairborn. Uncle Dutch worked so hard to help me find a job. He contacted all his friends, Of which there were Hundreds, and made inquiries until I had a job. He LOVED his Sister Mary, and our whole family for sure. He was so glad that we settled just a few blocks away. Those were good years. It wasn't until after Lorain died that things changed and Mom and Dad moved to Southern Illinois to help take care of Dad's Parents.

I remember one summer when Uncle Dutch came to repair Great-Grandma’s countertops in the kitchen. He was working so hard that my sister (Ricci) and I came up with a song for him. The next time that he took a break, we found him outside near the corner of the house and we said “Uncle Dutchie, we have a song for you.” He got a gleam in his eye and a smile spread across his face and he said to us “What is it?” We both proudly sang “Uncle Dutchie the fix it man/If he can’t fix it nobody can/Yay Uncle Dutchie” we sang that bit a couple of times and we could tell that it touched him. He looked at us with so much love in his eyes and said “Girls, that sounded really pretty.” The next thing we knew, he put $5 in each of our hands and we gave him the biggest hug. I have so many other memories of Uncle Dutch, but that one is definitely my favorite and me that I will forever cherish.
