timing. He was a fixer and a builder who now leaves behind a family of handymen. He enjoyed
Buckeye football, beer with a dash of salt, and sodium in general. He was an active parent in
everything from boy scout campouts to cross state track meets. He was an especially proud
grandparent who was fortunate enough to witness multiple graduations, births, and weddings in
his final years.

David (Mary) Myers, Aaron (Kelly) Myers, and Lauren (Devin) Largent. He is also survived by
