Granddad lived a full life filled with ups and downs and run arounds. Great things and not so lovely things. No matter his nature, he gave to all his children a piece of himself to carry on to no matter where they might go. It could have been a memory of something simple or an action taken that changed some one's life forever. There will always be something there. If nothing else there is love. Love is the greatest gift one could give to another, and he gave his away to all his family. Now you can live on now to pass down what you have been given and share the magnificence of a good man.

My Dad & I weren't close until the last 20 years or so. When I got to know him I loved him even more. To tell you all the good memories would take more room than I have here, so suffice it to say we had a good time. He was a proud man, a good man, a self-made man who loved his wife, his family and God. We going to miss him doesn't give him enough credit...there's going to be one large gaping hole in our family.

I will never forget Grandad! He welcomed me into this family quite a while back and has always treated me as though I'd been in the family forever. It's so difficult to think of that one moment you want to share about a person, I just loved being around him, he always made me laugh. One of the funniest moments that does come to mind is when I was about 8 months pregnant and Jay and I visited for dinner one evening. While sitting around the table, Grandad asked me was I scared. I was surprised by the question and asked about what. His response was to shake his head and say "if I looked like you I'd be scared". I think I laughed so hard I cried!

I regret so much not helping him more in writing his biography, he had the best stories and the most interesting life. Great man, wish the girls had had more time with him...

Dad has always had a dry sense of humor. At family events you might think he wasn't listening and then all the sudden out of the blue he would respond comically to something that was said and it would crack everyone up. Even when Dad got sick he kept his awesome sense of humor.

It was a pleasure and an honor to meet him. I'll never forget them singing at Matthew and Catherine's wedding.

I am not sure if a lot of people know this, but Granddad was more of a father to me than a Grandfather. I grew up without a father and Granddad was always there for me as a father figure. My grandparent's home was more like a home to me and I practically grew up there. My fondest memories were of him and me out on the pier and he would teach me how to catch blue crabs and clean them. Every time we walked to the end of the pier I would get so excited to check the crab pot and see if there were any crabs in there. Once we had caught the blue crabs and cleaned them, Grandma would cook them up for dinner. It was delicious!

The other day I was put on the spot to tell a story about my Grandfather, and my mind went running and I couldn't think at that moment of the best story of my life to tell. And of course as soon as I was in the car on the way home it came to me. If I was going to share a story it would be this, the day I was born the nurse brought me into my Mother's hospital room. My mother held me and I was crying and crying. She just couldn't get me to calm down. About this time, my Grandfather walked in and as soon as he held me in his arms I stopped crying. We were bonded immediately from then on.

Grandad was one of the most important people in my life and for him to not be there anymore leaves a great hollowness that no one could ever fill. I love and miss you Granddad! Thank you for always being there for me.
