ADD A MEMORY
Anthony Angermeier

November 1, 2019

Grandpa taught me lessons wether deliberate or not. He taught me about working hard for what you want. It didn’t matter if was in athletics, your career, or relationships. To be successful you had to put your time in. That gave me a confidence that I could do anything.
As a kid Grandpa was larger than life. He was tall, big, and strong. He was always proud of his handshake. His handshake Would shame men half his age. He also had a big heart. He would let me sit with him on the back porch and listen to a ballgame. Never once would he ask me to get down or move for him.
He had a great sense of humor. I loved him telling a story and as he was laying it on heavier and thicker, he’d look over and give you a wink. In his mind I’m sure he was thinking, “I hooked ‘em again”.
Family was very important to grandpa. He and grandma always welcomed and loved us all together. The Christmas’s and Thanksgivings with his Mt St. Helens sizes dinner plates were always great times.
In one way or another he helped shape all of our lives. I’ll never forget him and his smile. Grandpa we all love you!
