I have one memory of grandpa I’ll never forget and it’s a lot to type on here but it involves fishing in plum gut with him and my dad

Truly going to miss this man and all of the stories he’d tell. The ultimate bargain shopper! Fortunate to have been able to call him “Grandpa” for the last 18 years. May he rest in pure peace. 😢😇❤️😘
