I LOVE you and will MISS you forever. You were my rock and confidant. You were a man with an honest heart and loved his God and family first. We had so many wonderful special moments which I will cherish forever and ever. My heart is breaking, it hurts so bad, but I know you are free of pain and suffering. You are dancing with the angels and most definitely having a Coors! ;) I will always have you in my heart Dad. I know I will see you again.

Words can't express how much he has impacted our lives and so many memories we have shared. From the sunken boat in the back pond (all wondering what happened haha) to the many humorous conversations around the table at Christmas. You will be missed grandpa

I've done so much thinking about this in the past couple of days, so many memories.....How to come up with the memory that has most effected me personally.
I think my favorite memory involves my Dad bringing home bits of wood and used lumber from his job at Turkstra. Without fail he would search out deals for himself and for me as well.
The memory about all of this that really stands out for me is how he strove to be accountable for even the smallest piece of material. He would search out a store clerk and pay the required price for anything he sought. The thought of simply taking some small random piece of anything home, no matter how small or insignificant without paying was not in his nature, and would never cross his mind.
Two things he hated more than anything were lies and theft. His good name meant everything to him.
I'm sure he is proud of his children as he successfully passed on these traits to all of us.
He showed us the difference between being just a father or being a Dad.......Our Dad will be sorely missed...
