Sorry for your loss. I knew him when we worked together at the Highway Department many years ago.

We will always miss you and keep you in our hearts. Your name will be carried on for life times to come. I’ll remember the trips to Georgia and Palatka where you showed me hard work pays off. You’ve been one of the most inspiring people in my life. Now you can dance,fish,hunt,and drive your hot rods ounce again. Love you papa.
