He lived a quiet life on a small farm where he cared for his family, was a deacon of his church, worked on old cars, and opened his heart to all. He will be joyfully remembered for his remarkable sense of humor, his strong faith in God, and his deep love and devotion to his family.

  1. Lori, Lisa, Lynae andLeann.
    My deepest sympathy to you all.
    His battle was long, He is now resting.

  2. We are sorry for the loss of your father. We had all good impressions of him, because Lisa – like our daughter – loved him very much and was a totally loyal daughter to each of her parents. We remember stories of collecting eggs – several at once – and hard work . . . but all respectful for parents who were faithful to their family and taught their daughters about the Lord, how to live, and how to work! We ARE very much thankful that your loving parents showed you the ways of the Lord and that we can all be certain that they are now with their Savior! Hallelujah. The Resurrection never meant so much, right?! You’re saying goodbye now, but we have a blessed hope of seeing our loved ones again . . . probably soon! Praying for you in your loss, which is very real and life-changing. We are so sorry for the hurt. We sorrow not as those who have no hope, however! Much love, Ed and Judy

  3. So sorry to hear about your dad! He was a wonderful friend and neighbor! I was out of town to my brother’s in TN and just got home. So sorry to have missed the funeral and seeing all of you! Much love & hugs! Roberta
