Dad, we will all miss your sarcasm and humor, the way you always had such witty comments in anything you did. Listening to the old 8 track stereo, dancing, cooking hamburgers, making pizza, sitting in the garage watching the rain, laughing at the funny faces you would make, squeezing your hand, and going oosh, oosh, oosh, to your beard. So many memories come flooding back and we are grateful to have had you in our lives. Thank you for being a great dad and husband, always supporting our family and doing your best to provide us with all we needed.

Lanny was preceded in death by his parents Woodrow and Margaret Pemberton and a brother, Woodrow Pemberton II.
