This is from his daughter Sandra. He was a good dad. He welcomed all kids into our home and treated them as his own. He was so loved and respected by so many people. I have heard that my dad had huge effect on their lives! It means so much to me. He introduced me to Jesus. He was a man of few words. I will miss him terribly! But I have much hope and joy that I will get to spend an eternity in paradise with my daddy. But most of all and most importantly with Jesus!
