His greatest passion was his grandkids and great-grandchildren; he had the biggest heart. They knew him best as Pam-Paw. They will never forget the spontaneous visits to IHop and Applebee’s. He had many war stories that brought a smile to your face. His laugh and smile were contagious; he could light up a room! He was simply amazing! He was not your average grandpa, remembered for his famous lines, “Up yours!” and “You know what I mean, Jellybean”.
