Our father is one extraordinary man. He was a beloved husband, a blessed father and grandfather. Our dad's smile shined when he saw any of us kids or grandchildren. He told us the most funny stories of his life growing up. There was always plenty of laughter around Dad.
Dad loved archery, hunting and fishing which he did with his family.
Our God gave us the greatest father on earth.
DAD- you will always be missed.
DAD- you'll be in our hearts forever.
DAD- you'll never ever be forgotten.
