Our precious husband, dad, grandfather, and brother has gone to be with our Lord where he will live in his new forever home in Heaven. On May 6, 2017, we said our last goodbyes to the most wonderful man God put on this earth. In our eyes, he was a hero who lived by example in his values, hard work, and dedication to his family and friends. He was well loved by many. He loved life and loved mentoring all with his positive and encouraging words. In his eyes, everyone could accomplish anything they set out to do as long as they stayed focused and applied themselves. "I can't," was not acceptable where he was concerned. We will miss him and treasure his memories in our hearts forever, but take comfort in knowing we will someday be together once again.
