The family would like to thank Hospice, the nurses at Holy Family Memorial Medical Center Oncology and Dr. Winkler for their care and compassion.

Our Dad, Grandfather, Husband took great interest in his children, grandchildren and especially his wife. One of his greatest talents was carving. He won numerous awards for his work. His other passion was his yard. He couldn't wait until Spring to start his gardening. He will be greatly missed by all who loved and knew him.
