He will be greatly missed by all of his family, relatives and friends. All who knew him have said that he was a great, steady man and Carolyn, Kevin and Chris wholeheartedly agree to that sentiment. He was a great blessing to all who knew him, and one of the kindest, gentlest man any of the ones he left behind ever knew.
