He was an amazing papaw i still can't believe he is gone. He was always there for me and my brother and never left his wife's side. I'm going to miss hearing his stories about when he was little and him telling us to go his bus route way when we were driving. I love you and miss you papaw.

From working on cars to working on his tomato garden, papaw was always there for me. Every other weekend when I saw my father he was right there with us. He was a loving man and always there by his wife’s side. The times I had with my dad and papaw will never be forgotten and will always be in my heart.


I love you papaw
