Thank you Mr. Witte. Yes, our dad was a jokester and a very hardworking man. As one of his daughters, who was out there every summer hauling hay he taught us to be hard workers and honesty. He truly loved baseball and was a Yankees fan and was fortunate to see them play against the TX Rangers and the Hou Astros. I will no doubt miss him dearly but assured he lived a great life and made it the best. I will forever cherish the fond memories of our dad aka old man.

Condolences to the family and all that knew Emil. He was a well know and respected Inezian for sure! I have fond memories of him as he hauled hay for both my Grandfathers and my Father and I watched him so you could say he taught me how to haul hay! He was a joker, a humorous man and always fun to be around even when he was working! He will be greatly missed.
