Some of my favorite childhood memories was when my Uncle Johnny took us out on his boat. He taught me how to fish. Later as I got a little older he helped teach me how to drive. My uncle was a kind man, a hard worker and loving father. My condolences to his family. May you rest in peace Uncle Johnny.

Grandpa makes the best eggs ever! Okay, I am quoting my son Evan. Evan spent a week with mom and dad while Victoria and I went on our honeymoon. I remember the first time I made eggs when we got back and Evan said “these do not taste like grandpas”! I asked dad later what was the secret to his eggs and he just shrugged and said “salt and butter”.

My little brother Johnny was a quiet person. I was accused of always answering for him so he didn't have to talk. I am blessed that he is my brother, you couldn't ask for a more dedicated Husband, Father, and Brother! I always knew I could count on him! With one exception...when he retired and I asked him to fix something on my car...he looked at me and said "I'm retired"
It's hard to imagine my world without him. However he left me Lety, Ruben/Randall/Kesley, John/Crystal/Cooper, Patrick/Victoria/Evan/Catalina, Bobby, Adam/Stephanie/Noah, to fill the void. His legacy is his family and I am truly blessed to be part of this family! I'll miss you little brother!
