I will always remember him as big hearted man who loved his kids and always made their friends feel welcome. I am sure I was personally responsible for helping Donna and Cheryl put a few grey hairs on his head, yet he always welcomed me with a big smile and a hug. He will be greatly missed and always loved.
My love and condolences to his family
