Shaun and Hank, Kim and I are so sorry to hear the news of your dads passing! He was such a great man! We will always remember how good he was to us over the years! When we had problems with our boiler, he would drop what he was doing and come over and fix it so my family would not be with out heat! We are sending good thoughts and prayers your way!

That man is a success who has lived well, laughed often and loved much, who has gained the respect of intelligent men and the love of children, who has filled his niche and accomplished his tasks, who leaves the world better than he found it, who has never lacked appreciation of earths beauty or failed to express it, who looked for the best in others and gave the best he had.
