Rest in peace "good buddy". Got a smile on my face thinking of you, we always had a good long laugh when together. It was my privilege to have worked with and to have known you as a friend. This world needs more people like the "Rebel" 🙏

Helen, you know how much Rebel meant to us. A happy guy ready to help anyone. Whenever we would pass your place on the way to our cabin, we would look to see if the chain was down. Then out loud, we would say, I wonder what time he would be visiting. Telling tales of everyone in the mountain. Always good words. He would offer to help before you even finished your sentence. He will be missed by so many people.

What can we say, Rebel you were a man of kindness! You always had a smile on your face and a happy word to share. Although it's been many years since we've been together we will always remember and cherish those times. Helen, may God grant you peace at this time. Allow those who love you help carry this burden. It's in His strength that we move forward. We love you Helen.

“Hey there, Rebel!” is what we would holler to the tall man riding up the stone driveway. “How you doin buddy?” his reply. Eager to offer a firm handshake. Anxious to hear a story about the one that got away. His smile was innocent, his laugh was contagious, his friendship was genuine. The mountain will miss the man they called “Rebel”, and so will I.

There are no words to tell how much you will be missed. We all had smiles on our faces when you were around. You were always the first around to help when anybody needed it. You will be missed but never forgotten. Love, Jim, Betty, and Bob Krause
