The most “tell all” is what a great family of sons and daughters he raised. The Shoop Scoops are so loving and fun and share a solid sense of family. He will live on in each of you and throughout his extended grandchildren and great grands. Live your best life for him.

Missing you Grandpa, but I know you are now with Grandma. Didn't get to see you much this last year due to the epidemic. Love you.
