Thank you to those that loved him and were able to enjoy his phenomenal presence. Our family will cherish him always. A memorial service will take place and be announced at a later date and time.


A light from our house is gone. A voice we loved is still. A place is vacant in our home, which never can be filled. It is hard to part with one so dear, little we thought the time so short. Farewell dear one, your life is past, our love for you will always last.

                          Sorrowfully submitted,

                                The Family
