Junk man, I just found out and I am blown away. You and your dad were always there for me bro when I needed you. You always had a heart of gold and great friend. I remember when I had the pig roast at my house in Johnson and over 100 people showed up and I will never forget I went looking for you and you had a chair in the dogs pen and you were hanging out with Zeus and Tashia LOL My dogs loved you boy,Another time my truck blew a rod and you gave me a motor out of another truck it had screws on all the emissions tubes and you had a guy put it in my truck and you said to me the only thing I need to do was change the oil... I had that truck 3 years and NEVER changed the oil and it ran GREAT. These are just 2 of many but I have to say,You were the best, I love you bro and I am truly going to miss you. My life has just gotten more sad and I long for the old days when everyone was together. God Bless you and rest in peace bro and I will see ya. Be safe...

I haven't figured out which of the pranks you would pull on me while I was growing up was the most torturous; could it be the saran wrap on the toilet bowl, turning off the hot water mid-shower, driving my pre-heated car half way down the road in the snow before school then turning the key off or maybe it was the time you set firecrackers off in a coffee can right outside my second floor bedroom window at 6am 🤣 You were a lunatic! But nothing could stop me from loving you! You were the man who taught me how to live and act right even though most of the time you were acting a fool. You were insightful to people's bs and taught me how to see people as they truly were. My lessons learned from you have made me who I am today and I keep them close to my heart evermore now. You were the best father/uncle any small B**** could ever ask for, I will always love you, Farcle, for ever & ever ❤️
