Our Pop was an incredible man. He was the best father and grandfather he knew how to be. He was always so thoughtful with a little gift of something mentioned in passing. Our family would like to thank everyone for their love and support.

You introduced me to the pleasure of wood carving. I will always remember your kindness, as a teacher and friend.

Dear Red, I know you are looking down from heaven and smiling - you always had a smile for everything. Thanks for all the times we sat and talked about plains, cars, politics and movies. I will miss you beating the crap out of us in dominoes. My heart was sadden when Donna told you had pass. Understand this, you were like a father to a lot of use. Will miss you Santa Claus. Love Dale

From our third grade romps at Fries Ave. Elementary in the 40's to our enduring friendship and doing the geezer shuffle almost 70 years later. So quick the years....... I'll always remember the friendship, the laughs, your generosity. Wilmas has lost a favorite son, Judy and I a treasured friend. Have a smooth ride, pal. Jim Waight

I can't put into words what you have meant to me and my family for the past eleven years and how empty my heart is without you walking beside me. I know you would want me to be strong, and I am trying. For now ............. my love forever and a day! Connie xxxooo
