In memory of,
Robert Arnold Avery Sr.
My grandfather, (Pappy Avery) was a great and wonderful man. He was a great role model no doubt about it. He was a well-respected man and was a hard-working tough guy who never slacked off. He always had something to say. He was definitely a man who was good with words. Always had a quote, and a saying for everything and was definitely a wisecracker no doubt about it and I think that's where I get it from. He was a devoted family man, he was an old fashioned stick to ones guns type of man who was always honest and always stayed true to what he believed in.
Rest in peace, Pappy Avery. I loved you to death. And I'm going to miss you more than anything.
I will always remember you.
