He received numerous awards, accommodations and certificates of achievements from the Department of the Army.

Dad was the most loving and kind person you could ever meet. Always ready to give someone a helping hand. He had a delightful sense of humor, always knowing which buttons to push to get you to react, where he would turn, wink his eye, and laugh. We will forever miss you Pop!
