Grandad was truly one of the "Greats"!! He was the most generous, hardworking, fair, loyal, kind, funny, and clever man I have EVER known. I'm going to miss him more than I can put in words. He gave life to this family and very much appreciated legacy.
I could not have asked for a better grandad. I have such fond memories of our time spent together. He was a wise, caring and generous man who will be missed greatly.
My time spent with my grandfather greatly influenced my love of science, nature, and the outdoors. He was a great man and I cherish all the summers spent at Lake Aluma, time spent at oil wells and various state parks, but - most of all - the week we spent exploring the ranch. I am a better, wiser person for knowing him.
A fine man with wit and subtle charm...a person I am better for having met.
You were a wonderful granddad and will be greatly missed. You have given me and my family so much, you truly blessed us. Thank you.
