He’ll always be remembered
As a man both strong and good,
Who gave his best for others
And who did the best he could

Dear Janet and Karl, Craig and Lorice, Justin, Jessica, and Gil. Thank you for sharing your Dad and Grandpa with us for all of these years. As you know, Kenny and I loved him dearly, as did Emerson and Scotty. He was so very proud of you all, and when you weren’t there, always spoke fondly of you. Janet and Karl, your career choices, and retirement choices. Jan, we know he couldn’t have lived without you. He saved everything to do “just for you”. Kenny was never allowed.😜🤪😘Craig and Lorice, he always respected your choice to live in the country as Lorice always had done with her family, and he was especially proud of Gil and his love of cars and racing abilities. He always told us he loved how Craig and Gil would work on the cars together and was amazed at Lorice’s support of this. As for Justin, his first Grandchild — he thought the World of you and always told us how you've grown into such a fine young man. We kinda think so too. ❤️Jess, we remember the first time he met you, he was like a marshmallow. He sometimes had that tough exterior, philosophical lectures to all of us, but he just thought you were the best. He always told us that he loved the way you did your own thing. He really was proud of you Jessica. All in all, Kenny and I just want to say thank you for always showing us love, we hope you have felt it right back, because we think the world of you guys. Good job to your Mom June (who is such a classy lady and a sweetheart too)and your Dad, they did an outstanding job on raising you all. Oh, by the way, Karl — do I talk a lot.....? XoX
