My Cutie Pie,
My Grandfather was respected by everyone he ever crossed paths with ! Always willing to help someone out if he could. My favorite memory of him is when I would call or come to see him and I will tell him “Hey there cutie pie” he would look around the room as though he didn’t know I was talking to him, and tell me” You need to get your eyes checked . We would laugh and I would tell him “you know I’m talking about you”. You are missed so much already, but I know you are at peace. I hope to have your strength one day. I love you with all my heart and you are the most amazing person I have ever known. 💚🇺🇸

One of the most thoughtful men I have known for 47 years, a wonderful Dad to his kids and treated others like he was Dad. My heart goes out to the family, he will be missed, he was an inspiration to me. I looked up to him as he was respectful and hard working without complaining..Love you Mr Bomboy!!

My grandpa was the best man I’ve ever known. Devoted to work. Taking care of his family, always. Many of my childhood years were spent staying the night at his house. Waking up eating Cheerios and bananas in our cereal. He taught me how to play games in the weekly newspaper. He shared many stories with me about his life. One in particular was when he was in active duty. He tricked someone that he got a tattoo of a bulldog but wouldn’t show it unless his friend got the same one he picked out.... he never actually got it haha!! He always made me laugh. I cherished every minute I spent with him.. a piece of my heart will be with him forever.. I love you so much Rest In Paradise! You deserve nothing less!!!
All my love
-Bethy <3

"Mr B" was truly one of a kind..We met in 1998 at the Denver Auto Auction where we worked together for 14 years.. He took me under his wing and we were a great team during that time..I will never forget his kindness , loyalty, and the friendship that we shared over the last 21 years ..It was an honor to have known you and an even greater one to have been your friend..RIP buddy..

Mr B was a blessing to our family, he will be missed by all of us. I deeply appreciate his devotion to my kids, Richard and Lisa, and to my Grandkids Nick, Christopher, Courtney, and Savannah. He was always there for them, they loved him dearly. He was the best Grandfather they could have ever asked for. RIP Mr B. We love you!

He was Kar Express's original "Bomber". Mr Bomboy can be remembered for always being at work from sun up to sun down. Bomboy had a wonderful sense of humor and his timing for leaving you speechless was admired as well. One of my fondest memories of "Bomber" was leading his troops (drivers) home from the annual car show at the events center....it was a horrible blizzard and it was about 11 pm, and here we were driving brand new cars back to the auction; it was a blinding blizzard and not once did he faulter....he got his flock back to the auction without any accidents...he was my hero! Thank you for being part of my team for so many years and showing the young kids how it was to be done. You will be missed. Forever...your Kar Express Family
