Dad is fondly remembered for his love of Wanta family vacations in the Northwoods, Polka's, old time Cowboy movies and warm beer!
He was a genius at fixing anything and "to me" the hardest worker you would ever know. He was a proud Riverwest Alumni and loved to tell stories about his Messmer Cronies. Dad, Grampa, Pops, GJ, BuckskaHoodaBoo we love you, Rest in Peace, You deserve it!
