Oh of the nicest man i had the privlage to know. You were such a family man who along with Marsha raised awesome sons. I cant even imagine the lives you helped mold or change through your commitment to the military. May you rest in peace now. You will be missed.

Throughout my life I have a handful of people that have made lasting impressions by sharing with me wisdom, kindness, and understanding without judgement. Your words echoe in my mind from time to time in daily life reminding me. Thank you . You definitely made this world a better place, and helped me become a better man.
