We will miss Pop Pop at all the kids parties and holidays, wearing his hat, smiling quietly, watching all that was happening from the side...you always knew he was having a good time and loved being with his family....Our thoughts, prayers and LOVE are with you always....and we know that he is sitting up there in heaven watching all from above, wearing that hat and smiling at his wonderful family!!! We love you all!

I am very fortunate to have had you as my father-in-law. You welcomed me into your family and treated me and loved me as a son, and I too loved you as a father. The memories of the fun times of our many family gatherings will always remain. You will be missed but never forgotten...

Hey Grandad, I hope heaven is wonderful. I am thankful for all the memories growing up and the time we got to spend together. I'm sure you were enjoying the 500 this year from the best seats. I'm glad you got to meet Justin and I know you'll be at our wedding even if we can't see you. We miss you and love you. Rachel & Justin

It is hard knowing I will not see your smiling face again for a long while, but I know you are enjoying the freedom of no longer being sick. All the memories of seeing you whittle wood, every coin or piece of candy, and all the wood carvings and smiles you ever gave me I will cherish forever. I will always carry you with me in my heart. Keep smiling down on us Grandad.
Love Always,
Emily

My Grandpa was a wonderful man. I am thankful to have had him for as long as I did and that he got to meet my daughter. They had a very special bond. She still likes to look at pictures of 'Pop Pop' :-) I can't wait till she's older so I can share my favorite memories of him with her... like how he always had candy in his shirt pocket :) he was truly amazing and is greatly missed. We love you, Grandpa! Love, Stacey Re, Alex and Scarlett

I was so lucky to have you for a dad. You were the best dad, grandpa and Pop Pop. We all have great memories...eating boiled peanuts, always having candy in your pocket and you always wearing your hats. I know you are in a better place, with no pain and you can finally walk. I love and miss you so much...I will always be a "Daddy's girl".

I miss you more & more each day. So glad we all spent our last Xmas together. You were a fighter to make it to Tami & Mike's to be with everyone. I love you so much & that will never change. So sad !!!

I know that this might come off as selfish, but I find myself feeling grateful. I am grateful that you were able to make it to every one of my birthday parties, my high school graduation and my wedding. I am grateful that you were able to meet and know all three of my girls, and grateful that they are old enough to have their own memories of you (such as candy always in your shirt pocket). I am grateful that whenever I hear the music to Charlie Brown you will be the first person that pops in my mind. I am grateful for all the wooden magnets I have on my fridge, and for all the wooden ornaments that I get to hang on our Christmas tree. But most of all, I am grateful that you were my Grandpa. So carry on up in Heaven now Pop-Pop, doing the things again that you once never thought you would be able to do, and I will continue to be grateful for the 36 years that I had with you to make memories.......Love, Shelley, Scott, Haylee, Hannah and Leah Holbrook

I will always remember the great times I got to spend with my grandpa. The trips to the movies, the car shows, the cabin in North Carolina with the trips to Bud's to secretly buy his chew which always came with the same words... "don't tell your grandma," but she always knew. I will always remember that whenever I called the house or saw him in person he always greeted me with "Rosco P. Coltrane" or simply "Hey Rosco." He was a good man and one of the best grandpa's a kid could ask for. I will miss him.
