He was a mentor and teacher, Army veteran, Eagle Scout, beloved husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather whose proudest treasure was his friends and family.

“His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’ Mathew 25:21
