I grew up on a neighboring farm. Knew the family well. Went to school with most of them [grade and high school]. We spent many summer months playing softball, etc.

Rest in Peace.

I have so many memories with you. You were my stepfather for 40 years. When you came into my life, I was a 9 year old. You shred many a milestone with me.. Watching me grow up, graduate high school, start college and a career, purchase cars, and bring two kids into the world. You were the best grandpa my children could have hoped for. Austin and Tori had a tremendous love for you. To this day they still believe their grandpa is/was Santa Claus. There are so many trips and vacations I remember as well as all the fun festivals and parties we got to go to because of your church and Knights of Columbus affiliation. Met many nice people through you. I could sit here and list 40 years worth of memories, but there is just not enough time or space on the page. I am sad to see you taken, however, I know since mom went away you always told me you could not wait to see her again. We will miss you, but we are relieved you are not in pain and you have finally reunited with the love of your life. Knowing you are in a better place , in peace and with your loved ones, gives me a sense of comfort. I love you and mom and hope you will continue to watch over us from above.

Love you, Rest in Peace
