I always remember him as an introspective- kind person who was an amazing conversationalist. Also, I have good memories of him helping me with my French lessons in HS by writing me in french while he was in the service. He was very special ,and an incredible father that carried his daughters everywhere with him when they were children.I thank 🙏his caring daughters ,son in law ,and all those that cared for him during his his long illness.
