Although you were a man of few words, when you spoke, everyone listened. You were the man that could fix anything!
If it was “broke” you would complain about it’s cheap quality, but still figure out a way to fix it. You preferred your dessert, before your main meal & coffee over EVERYTHING! You were always very observant. If people listened really close they would have heard some of the most hilarious commentary, as you mumbled under your breath, your thoughts and opinion on their conversation. Your laughter was contagious and your love was unconditional.

You have left such a legacy and a lasting impression on our family and the generations to come.
We are thankful for the wisdom you shared with all of us.
We will always cherish the moments that turned into memories.
You will forever remain in our hearts.
Paw’Paw, until we see each other again,
we love you dearly!

Love always,
Chasity, Chris, Logan, Muffy & Bree
