One of the kindest and most gentle man you could know. He was always there for anyone who needed him and always smiling. His love for John Wayne movies was only surpassed by his love for his family and the Lord. He often had a secret sign for Sandy that he used when he thought she was talking too much and it was so funny to watch them together and the signs they gave each other. The Lord has gained a great person in his kingdom!

Thanksgiving 2018. I will always remember that my Grandpa was a wonderful man full of love, compassion, patience, understanding, and more than anything had the best advice. When I didn't know which way to go his simple straight forward advice was always on point. I will miss him so much. I love you Grandpa.
