ForeverMissed
This memorial is in everlasting memory of a beloved Hubby, Dad, and Grandpa. His beautiful smile, wonderful outlook of the world and values acquired during an industrious life will always inspire us to be happy and live in the service of family, friends and society. We are grateful for the gift of his companionship and his continued presence in our minds. 

He made many friends, of all ages and treasured his relationships with family and friends very much.  We'd love to read of your personal interactions with him if you could jot them down in the “Stories” section.  Do surprise us by sharing photos you may have that we'll treasure in our cherished memories.

With love and regards to all he knew
