So very sorry for your loss, he was one of a kind, not only was he my boss but a true friend, and how rare that really is to find in a person. He will be greatly missed.

I will forever miss seeing your smile Grandpa. I will miss that crazy laugh and seeing gleem when my children gave you hugs and kisses. I will always be greatful for our memories together and we will always keep you close to our hearts. Nevaeh charishes her time after school with you when she looked forward to sitting down with an apple to talk about whatever came up. Ethan will never let go of the exact overalls as yours he put on the top of his xmas list so he could wear them when we came out to the farm and you could show him what hard work really was. Mia and Conrad will always charish the farm and cows and their spots on your lap when they came to visit. ❤❤ I will miss you always.
