    What a wonderful man! Always quick to smile and laugh. Truly a heart of gold
    We are all truly better people for having him in our lives. He was one of the
    most genuine people I have ever known. He was the standard for good values and
    sense of family .We should all try and follow his example. We will all miss you

    Janet and Family, our thoughts and prayers are with you. So sorry for your loss. Our memories of your dad and family go way back. I loved your parents and getting to go “out” to your house “in the country”. A special treat was when they would let us ride the horses bareback! You will always miss your dad, but he will always live in your heart, with memories to cherish.
