He was an active member of St. Luke's Catholic Church serving as an usher, and Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion, money counter and honored member of the Men's Club renowned for his cooking.
So many family and friends will miss him but we are comforted to know he is with God in heaven and probably showing St. Peter how to make meatloaf.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the St. Luke's Bereavement Ministries.
