Our thoughts are with all the family at this time and in the days to come. Mr. Setliffe was a gentle man who was very much respected by others and especially by his son, Chuck. He lived an exemplary Christian life and had a kind, loving spirit. He accepted me and Jamie into this wonderful family with his love and concern for us. Having attended holidays, birthdays together, we were always welcomed. He will be greatly missed and always remembered. Love, Francie & Jamie
