My fondest memory of him is his Christian Character. He loved his Lord. He loved people. He loved his friends and family. He LOVED ME.
He loved sharing his hunting experiences with my husband Darrell.
He always sent birthday and Christmas cards to his entire family. And he had a BIG family.
He loved my 3 sons.
He loved to see my grandchildren, and loved reading to them .
He loved sharing his vegetables from his garden. I always wanted to help him because he grew a big one, but he wouldn’t let me help.
He served and loved his country.
He was more of a father than my biological father was. I will miss our little talks. I will miss your Voice. I will miss your smile and tight hugs! . I will miss YOU!
Love you💗
