I had the pleasure of living in the same apartment complex as your Dad. I chatted with him most days. He loved to tease me and get a rise out of me about political issues. There was a group of us who drank coffee together mornings with him. He always brought something to share and lots of sarcasm-all good natured.

He will be greatly missed by all. I will miss his teasings.

Everybody here knew and loved him. He was a great card player and puzzle player.
