January 22, 1935 – September 29, 2020

Our quilt square, designed and constructed by his granddaughter Taylor, captures Dad completely. His daily wardrobe was the uniform which he wore at his daughters restaurant. He worked everyday until COVID hit and closed the restaurant but Dad continued wearing his work clothes of black jeans and black shirt, with pocket, which always carried his glasses. He was a loving husband, father and grandfather who is missed every day. He was kind, dedicated and hardworking right up to the day he passed. He was not a big talker but what he said had meaning. He always hoped someone could benefit from what he left behind, and that hope came true with his donation of tissue and eyes. His life is now complete!
