Beloved Uncle, you provided us with wonderful memories of days swimming in Jamestown beaches. The first time I ever saw 100 MPH was in your 1966 Corvette, sitting in the back with no seat belts. You were very devoted to your nieces and nephews and in many ways you were a father to us, to me. May I be blessed to see you in the resurrection.
