What a man. He loved his children and he loved life. Never afraid to hit you between the eyes with the truth and share pearls of wisdom from a seasoned point of view. He was always proud of the way his children turned out and talked about them to anyone who would listen. He only had one true love in his life and respected her to the fullest. He will be missed by all who knew him. Go Rest High on that Mountain!!
