Good morning I don't know where to begin my heart is broken for the family but I also know that heaven gained another angel I meant CW when I was young man greenhorn a punk just a kid CW was a no-nonsense kind of guy see he knew everything about construction an me as a electrician he knew my job better than I did. You see things had to be done to perfection from getting there on time too cleaning up after yourself the stuff people, don't understand if you've ever been on job site. You see with CW you had to earn his respect and now that I'm older these guys are our greatest generation and I'm so thankful that I had the opportunity to be around him and his sons because you know when you left one of his jobs it was done right.. I could go on and on but it just saddens me for the loss for his family. He was a man's man and I just thank God I had the opportunity to be around him may God bless his family and may God bless this country
