ADD A MEMORY
Kathleen Eisenbeis`

October 29, 2018

From playing shark in the pool when I was 5 to taking me square dancing just this year when he was 93... I was so blessed to have such a loving, and fun loving Father. He was more than just fun, he was there in the difficult times too, wise and supportive. And he was there for the entire family that way. He also served others in his many volunteer duties, including Meals on Wheels, even delivered meals once after he went on hospice!
Dad was a blessing to all in our family and to many others as well.
Thanks Dad for all those wonderful memories and a legacy of faith.

Dad loved God and prayed that all would try giving God a chance. Next he loved his wife, his children and all extended family and he loved us well. Dad loved life! I am grateful to have the assurance that dad is celebrating in heaven with Jesus and enjoying more dances with mom. Thank you for a lifetime of happy memories dad! I miss you.
Love,
Maureen
