"A memory I have of you Dad was when you showed me your paycheck one time, when I was about sixteen years old,  You worked very, very hard and were extremely proud of the excellent pay you received as a "Trucker" which allowed you to take very good care of your family! Great job, Dad!

P.S.- I love working too. It's a wonderful escape from the complex emotions of real life!  I get you! Tammy"

"Hi Dad! My first memory of you was sitting on your lap and looking at your tattoo.  Your blue eyes were so striking against your black hair which I loved to touch as a little girl.  You worked hard and taught all of us to work hard too, which I treasure ever-so-much!  I wish you would have taken better care of yourself though, as your body struggled with chronic medical conditions during the last few years of your life, making it hard to get your work done around the house.  You were stubborn, strong willed and willful during your youth.....a real Man's Man as they say!  However, I remember seeing you cry a few times, despite your strong demeanor; once when our dog Pandi was killed by a car and the other when I begged you to attend an AA meeting with me.  I actually got you to go....amazing now that I realize the man that you were!  Love you forever Dad! Tammy"

"Uncle will always have a very special place in my heart.  You were always so loving and caring towards me.  You always came to all my fun and crazy get togethers.  I loved growing up, going to your house at Christmas; swimming in your amazing pool, sliding down the slide and watching you tinker in the garage and out in your yard.  I loved that riding lawn mover!!  Helping you take care of Hamburger and Steak....still want to know what happened to them?

I also know you were my Secret Santa all those years that my Mom struggled at Christmas time...I will never forget how happy I was on Christmas morning to wake up and know Santa didn't forget me!

Rest in peace my dear sweet Uncle and know we all love you and will be ok and we will all be joining you again one day!! I will always love you and miss you dearly....Love Melody :)"

"Dad, Any memory I have of you is a happy one. All though you were the stoic silent type we had our moments of true bonding. You taught me an amazing work ethic and gave us all you had to give.
I, my wife Ellada and children love you and always will. I will make sure they remember their strong , fearless grandfather with the respect you deserve, but also the side of you who sweetly loved them."

"Grandpa, words can't describe the hole in our hearts.  You are one in a million.  Thank you for everything you have taught me.  For a man of few words, you left a big impact.  Love and miss you, your TJ."
