RIP to my hero...the most loving, kind-hearted man I’ve ever met. The man with 1,000 nicknames who was adored by every single person he met. It was always special to see how he kept and made friends so easily. He had six kids and about 1937283 grand/great-grand kids but never once did he ever show partiality to any of us. His love was like the hottest fire and never once did any of us go a day without him reminding us of how special we were to him. His work ethic was unmatched, and his personality was never anything short of witty. He was a professional “pretend guitar player” and George Jones’ #1 fan. His glass was ALWAYS half full, and he always knew how to brighten up the darkest of days. Thank you so much for all of the life lessons, countless living room concerts, and all of the millions of hugs. You truly were the epitome of love and I really hope that I can become 1/4 of the man you once were. Love ya pop..❤️ Connor
