I'll always remember how thoughtful and carrying he was for everyone and especially for my grandmother when she needed something he was always willing to do what ever he could for her.
He always make me and my boyfriend laugh with some of his old time story's. He was like a grammpie to us. He will surely be missed and loved always and never forgotten.
