I had the pleasure of meeting Punk and his family 2 years ago, and it felt like I had know him all my life. He was so welcoming and friendly. His smile was infectious and he truly loved life. His strong love for his family was evident and you could tell how he enjoyed having them (plus some) over for the ritual Sunday lunches. His house was filled with love, laughter, and sports on TV; and he always had about 20 types of candy on his coffee table for everyone to enjoy. He will be one of those Always Memories embedded in my mind. Punk will be truly missed as so many people loved him. Prayers and condolences for his amazing family and friends to have some kind of comfort and peace throughout this most difficult time.

I met Punk and his wonderful family several years ago, and he welcomed me into his house as if I were a member of his family. Punk was a wonderful person and we shared many hunting stories. I know he will be truly missed by every member of his family. My sincerest condolences and love goes out to every member of his truly great family.

Sherry, Kelli and family,
It was a pleasure getting to meet Punk. He welcomed me in his home like family and told me “get yourself some food!” He was a wonderful man and I know he will be sorely missed. Prayers for all of you as you go through this difficult time. May your memories sustain you.
