Larry and I became friends with your Dad while working at Delco. He "fixed" machines that Larry broke. My friend Jean Corey and I were "off line" machine operators and he would, at times, relieve us for about an hour so he could build parts for the model shop. He would say to us "take a break girl's". We were always happy to see
"Mr. Ed". Other times we would be on Co. breaks and we would just sit and talk about everything & anything, solving the problems of GM and the World haha...he was a Book of Knowledge! I believe his brain was like a sponge, nothing he couldn't talk about. He was a always calm,lay-back. When it came to talking Family...he talked proudly of his three sons Robert,Charles, Stephen and of his Grandchildren. He talked of the good cook your Mom was and the great Italian meals.
We have played cards together for over 20 years. First in a Euchre League then switched to Fri. night Texas Hold' Em at our house. No matter the weather we knew he would be there..unless he was out of town. I believe April 26th was our last game. He will remain in our thoughts and prayers and missed emminsely! May he have a game going in heaven above.
Our Deepest Sympathy
