Our dad…He was a proud veteran of the United States Air Force and later worked for, and retired from DuPont. He loved to beat mom at cards. He loved to watch his kids and grandkids play sports. He loved watching Ohio State Buckeyes. He loved all things fishing. Catching fish, eating fish, tell stories about fish. He loved going out with mom and “the gang”. He loved mom’s cooking, family gatherings, laughing with his grandchildren. He loved to sit in the garage and watch traffic go by and visit with friends who would stop by. He was a fine man and devoted father until the very end. He will forever be missed.

For any man can be a father, but it took someone very special to be a daddy like ours.

We Love You Dad.

Kim, Tammy, Toren and Dianna
