Dad was a Coast Guard veteran of WWII and a retiree of Eastman Kodak Co. He was a loving husband, father and grandfather and will be greatly missed for his sense of humor and gentleness. Our Dad was always happiest on his beautiful property in Penn Yan sharing his life with his wife Jeanne. When the winter snows melt into spring you may like to plant a tree or a garden in his memory or take a nice country walk and think of him.
