Wyn and Dakota Wright, we want to express our deep sympathy for the loss of your Dad. He was a good friend and a good neighbor for the years we knew him. It was always a pleasure when he would come by our home here in the Gentry's Mill area for a visit. He was pleasant to be around while expressing a sense of humor and sharing some interesting stories about our backgrounds, the area and people we commonly know. He never failed to give us the latest progress his two sons were making while in high school and college activities and later in your adulthood. He was a proud dad who's love for his sons was very obvious during all the times of hard work on the farm/ranch and at times of play. May your fond memories of you Dad lighten your burden of grief.
We will miss him.
John and Karleen Roberts
