The family shares the following statement: We can’t begin to share all the things you did for your family. You were quiet mostly, but also funny. You never judged us. You treated us all equally. You made sure you provided all we needed, and you were a humble man. Your garden not only provided for us, but for the neighbors and you did not mind giving a helping hand. You taught us the meaning of hard work and demonstrated what it meant to be a good father, husband, provider and friend. When we think of words to describe you and what you meant to us, these words come to mind: strong, stern, modest, loving and respect. We are so grateful to have had as much time with our father as we did. We miss him so much already, and we will forever remember having the most incredible dad.
