What can we all say. He was a friend who I worked for and with for nearly 30 years. He was a great guy to work for and as a friend we enjoyed so many hours hunting and fishing together along with Joey and Jay as little boys and later as young men. Dottie and I enjoyed many weekends enjoying Gerald's and Brenda's company. Looking back so many memories from work. play and watching our children grow up together. Hard not to be sad, but the good times will always bring a smile to my face. He will be remembered in our hearts for as long as we live.

I have so many wonderful memories of my dad. My fondest memories of my father were spending time in the outdoors hunting and fishing. He started taking my brother and I at early ages and to this day it is still my favorite pastime. We spent so many great weekends in the woods and on the water and I can't thank him enough for introducing me to the outdoors. I know there were so many times my brother and I would drive him crazy and trust me he would let us know when we did, but we would always keep on going. He has left me with so many great memories of our adventures. I wish so much we could all go on one more hunting or fishing trip together but I know even though he may not be there physically, his memory will still be with with me everyday. I love you dad, may you rest in peace.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
