I can remember going out the door from work and he would be sitting on his bike waiting on you. I would tell him “ She’s on her way!” And I always got a smile from him. It would brighten my day to see the love he had for you! Love you my sweet friend.

To AJ and Family
Grumps was very special to us and was the strong concerned face at the end of Cathy’s bed after surgery years ago.
A dear friend who loved his family and stayed true to himself when others challenged his dedication to what he held close to his heart.
Ride strong, ride loud and ride with wings.

Grumps was a very special man that wanted people to think he was mean but he was one of the most caring and great men I have ever known. We are going to miss him very much.
