He was a loving family man who had a great sense of humor. He adored his late wife, Linda, and held a very special place in his heart for his “Baby Girl, Marie”.

One of his favorite vacation spots was the Fields of the Wood Theme Park. Among his favorite leisure time foods were buttermilk and cornbread, and ice cream, especially strawberry.

    “To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.”

    Marie knows all I am saying in the above words. I will be forever grateful for your Dad Marie while you and I were in High School. He is a precious Human Being who CARED. I will never forget him. Love you, Stacie
