Pat & Family. Sympathy to you and your family. While reading through the recent obituaries I happened to see the obituary about your dad. What a hard working man he was. Anyone aware of the oilfield life knows that it isn’t a lazy man’s job. Reading about him playing the harmonica to entertain the family brought back fond memories of my mom and how she entertained me as a child playing the harmonica. Living into his 90’s he created a lifetime of memories. No doubt that he will be missed by your family.
Once again Linda & I send sincere condolences to you and your family. Love in Christ, Ron & Linda Rowe

Dad loved to talk and had a good memory. He loved to tell the stories of the things he experienced in his life. He really enjoyed listening to country music. Recently I talked to him on the phone about Nashville redoing the Grand Old Opry building. I said it has another name - he thot for a minute and said "the Ryman Auditorium". Amazing to me......I'll miss you a lot you - Suzy

Uncle Louis joined our family when he married my mother's sister Betty Sue. I have fond memories of spending time at their house, lots of family, lots of laughter, lots of food, and plenty of smoking. Fun times! His passing ends that whole generation of family, he will be missed.
Condolences to my cousins Deb and Suzy and their families.
