Daddy loved to talk to anybody who would listen about all the things he had experienced in life. Growing up he was stern and just told you how the cow ate the cabbage, if you know what I mean. He was very much loved by everyone who got to know him, and especially his family. Rest In Peace, Daddy, your stories will live on.

I will miss visiting with him for hours on end, with him telling stories about Japan and riding motorcycles across the country. He was great at making things and could make just about whatever he put his mind to, even if it was down to the 1000th of an inch. He was a good man and will be missed.

I miss sitting in the living room with Paw watching him play the harmonica and telling stories to us even if it was the same story we heard a million times. He loved to tell stories and he loved everyone that walked into his house, he loved to watch old western shows with John Wayne in it and talking about how much he liked John Wayne. Paw was always super sweet and just wanted to talk and smile all the time. He will be greatly missed.
