Dear Deb, Billy and family,

Your dad was a really great guy. I have fond memories of rides on his boat and of laughs at the dinner table at many family functions. I'll always have a special memory of Capt. Pop-pop. May you find comfort in knowing that he touched so many in a positive way. My love and sympathy to you all.

FROM THE FAMILY
