  1. As some of you may know, Grandpa had a couple of tattoos on his arms. What few may know is that when getting his first one at the age of 15, he actually had his heart set on something besides the rose he ended up with… it was an Eagle that would span his chest, shoulder to shoulder, holding a banner that would say “Death Before Dishonor”… truly words this tough, great, and gentle man lived by. I’ll miss our talks about hotrods and WW2 over fish, chips, and a pint of ale… I’ll see ya on the other side Gramps.

  3. Grandpa, you will always hold a special place in my heart. I will miss our chats over hot chocolate, your words of wisdom, and special magnets for my fridge. But most of all I will miss your smile. I am at peace knowing that you are smiling in Heaven with Grandma! I love you both!

  4. I knew grandpa for about two years and enjoyed all the time I spent with him. I remember one time when Grandpa treated me & Tim to taco night at a Mexican restaurant near his home, afterwards we went to Grandpa’s house to look at his photo album from France. After we finished that he scooted us out cause he said he had a date with his lady friend! He was a true sweetheart and I will miss him dearly. My fondest memory of grandpa was seeing him in a recliner with either Heidi or Cricket at his side! Your’e in a better place Grandpa!
    Love, Meridith

    I will never forget the memories I have of my Grandfather. Every one of them being a good one. I always admired how he kept everything organized & was always thinking of something to build, not to keep for himself but to give to someone else. I only wish I was half as talented with my hands as he was. I have two idols in my life, my father & my grandfather. I am lucky enough to still have one left but the other will be missed every day until that day I get to see him again. I have and always will be proud to call him Grandpa.
    Love, Tim
