We consider ourselves truly blessed to have had this kind, caring, loving, strong man as our role model to what a man should be. Our father taught us leadership, work ethic, compassion and how to be a father. Dad learned about hard work at an early age growing up in a large family on a farm. He was a dedicated husband, father and grandfather who touched many lives in a positive way. We hear continually about what a wonderful man he was. Our family was so fortunate to have him in our lives as a teacher, provider and protector. We are so grateful and thankful that he provided a life and childhood for us that was so much better and easier than his own.
"Thank You Dad"
