My Dad was the greatest father I could have ever hoped for.
He was the type of man who always helped his family with whatever they needed; we always knew we could call on him for help.
He never met a stranger and I believe all who knew him will remember him for his sense of humor and the enjoyment that he got from being around family and friends.
He was a loving husband to my mother, and a great father to my brother and me.
He got so much enjoyment in life from being with his two grandsons. He and my mother may have spoiled them just a little bit.

Carl was one of the most honorable and kindness man I’ve ever meet. I was honored to have him as my brother in law. He loved my sister Bonnie so much as she did him. I know his family has many good memories to remember. My prayers and love are with you Lee and Carlton 🙏🏻❤️❤️
