Sorry for your loss Tony. We loved seeing and visiting with your dad at all the family gatherings. I'm a sucker for snickers and Mr. G never disappointed with a little gift of a snicker candy bar. I'm so glad we were able to see him at Christmas time and enjoy the holiday season for one last time with him and your family.

I will miss this wonderful man so much. My children called him Uncle Deddle. Jan and I called him Dad. When I was young my aunt lived with us while Dad was in the marines it was so special when he would come home on leave. I really thought I had 2 Moms and 2 Dads. (talking about spoiled, lol ) before they had kids ,Jan and I was the practice kids. when our parents passed, Jan and I still had 2 left. He has been there for us always. Whether you call him Uncle Deddle or Dad, I am so blessed to have him in my life. At the fire department, they called him Chief but he was Dad to us.

Sorry for you loss. I'm your cousin Alice, Vivian Guerry Taylor's daughter. We spent a lot of time together growing up. Didn't know his real name until older. We all knew him as Deddle. He was very kind and handsome.
