What a guy
Will always remember the hunting trips we had together. You taught me a lot.
The garage sales were my wife’s favorite.
You will be missed Lou
Rest In Peace.

Dear Marion and family, on behalf of Operating Engineers Local 137 my deepest condolences to all of you on the passing of your beloved father. I will certainly miss his tales of hunting and his talk of project's he undertook while performing his work very well as a Welder. I think this reading from scripture from the Book of Sirach, Chap 6 is how I will always remember your beloved father.

A faithful friend is a sturdy shelter, he who finds one finds a treasure.
A faithful friend is beyond price, no sum can balance his worth.
A faithful friend is a lifesaving remedy, such as he who fears God finds, For he who fears God behaves accordingly and his friends will be like himself.
