This wonderful caring man was my smart & witty Uncle by marriage to my beautiful & very sweet Aunt JoAnn. He loved life, he loved JoAnn, he loved his boys....oh how he loved his boys!! He was such a great dad to two super young men!! I loved visiting with him & talking about the past. He could always make me laugh!! He had some of the craziest jokes!! After I was married he always made my husband, my children & one grandchild he got to meet (Finn) so welcome when we visited. He had a way with babies!! I regret that I live so far away that I wasn’t able to visit him as much as I would have liked. I will truly miss him!! He will hold a very special place in my heart next to JoAnn, my mom & my father. May you all have a great reunion in Heaven!!
