Beardie will be greatly missed. He was one of a kind that always made me laugh an smile, said what he had to say with no filters, like him, love him or not, the choice was always yours not his. He was my gambling partner that I will miss greatly. To the family may you find comfort knowing that he no longer suffers and that he loved each and every one of you. Forever in my heart and mind.

This is a man I’ve known since I was little. He always was unselfish and listened to me even as a child. He was funny and caring . He was a shoulder to cry on and he could easily change the atmosphere from a sad place to a happy place . As I grew older he became my Godfather I was so proud of that . He sponsored me and he teased me saying “ he’s The Godfather “
He will always own a spot in my heart
See ya when I get there John !
