We are very sorry for your loss.

He was one of a kind, we will miss his smiling face, his sense of humor and his stories that always turned into a teaching moment.

A very good friend and a great neighbor who took us in when we first arrived as lake greenhorns.

May God’s peace be on you in this time of loss.

The Quigley's
