My deepest sympathy to all. God has received a great man into his fold. He always had a hug and a smile.My fondest memories are from the cemetery with him and Calvin and my daughter as Ash and i would walk the cemetery and he would be there to talk with us every time and later along with Buck would help us put flags on the veterans graves as he would bring them on the tractor or truck to save us some steps. He always brought a smile to my face. Rest in peace my dear friend.
