"I will always remember his smile and laugh. He was a good friend as well as brother in law. We had many good times in the American Legion. And I will always remember that big fish tank tank that he and Cisco had, with Piranha and Oscars. So many memories, so many laughs. He had such a good heart. I will so miss him."

"I didn't know Bootsie that well, but I have a very vivid memory of him.  It was at my grandpa Clarence's funeral--at the end of the service when people were coming by and offering their condolences.  Bootsie was shaking my dad's hand and all my dad could get out was "Thank you Bootsie.  It was the first time I'd ever seen my father openly cry."

"I have many Great Memories of Bootsie. When I was working for my Dad, he was working at Service & Parts as the Parts Man. He would always come over and visit Dad & I on his breaks. Many great stories were told and Bootsie will always be remembered as a True Friend. Thanks for the many memories Bootsie!"

"Bootsie was my first cousin and I remember going to his folks place as a youngster and riding on the flatbed full of hay bales that the boys had to buck. I was so afraid of falling off. I also remember going out into the field to bring the cows in to the barn at night.. Lilian planted a tree for my dad on that property and I hope someone plants one on their property for bootsie. The last family reunion I was at bootsie gave us a ride out to Rodger's for the night and just before we got out he took the Titan machinery baseball hat off his head and gave it to my husband Tom, he still wears it. Such good memories,thinking of all of you."
