Memories Timeline


  1. my grandpa was a great man and a great American he served in the Korean war and was a great family man. he loved to make people laugh and knew just how to do it. I will miss his storys of the war and of his life growing up. I remember when grandpa use to stay over we would watch home improvement together and have root beer floats, grandpa loved ice cream he always would say that their is always room for ice cream. one thing he loved more then ice cream is my daughter Sophie. Grandpa would light up every time he saw her. Sophie was grandpa’s second great grand child and Anthony was the first. when I was a kid grandpa showed me the right way to shake someone’s hand and that was our thing every time I saw him I made sure I gave him the best hand shake I could give him and he would always say ‘ who tought you to shake a hand like that’ and I would say you grandpa and he would say ‘ that’s right’ grandpa always said you can tell a lot about a person by the way they shook your hand. everyone who knew my grandpa could tell you their own unique story that’s just the type off guy he was. He enjoyed making people happy and because of that he will never be forgotten

  2. Thank you for being the best Dad there could ever be. You gave me and Joe many years of happiness, fun, and lots of love. It means a lot to me that I was singing to you when you left us to go be with Johnny and Alan.

  3. You will be missed, but fond memories remain…the tallest Christmas trees,that any of the children had ever seen, your easy laugh, your generosity…and we know,you were greeted with open and loving arms, when you reached that other shore.

  4. We Love You and Miss You, You Will Always Be In Our Heart and On Our Minds. DAD say Hello to JOHNNY and ALAN for us. Take Care DAD!!

A shining example of a Man to be. But, you’re now needed in the Heavenly Lodge. Time has come for your 34th Degree. Leaving behind the ones you Love. Are the dues that you must pay. From afar, you can watch over them. A part of your obligation this day. This is the farthest you can go. The highest point of Masonic Life. No higher an honor can be sown. In God’s Lodge, you must now stride. God in the East, King Solomon, the West. They open the Lodge for you this day. You go the way as Masons before. To sit with Pride, and stand with Praise. The Alter shows the Love you felt. Brotherhood of Man, One and All. Your deeds reflect like shining Gold. The jewel you wear is none too small. You now stand, before this Alter. Deserving of the rest you now seek. No longer to toil the labors of life. Grand Masters’ wages are yours to keep. Those of us you’ve left behind. Will carry on the work for you. Your dedication will shine for all. A memorial you leave for all to view. So, gather your wages, rest for now. Lay back in the shade of Gods’ great tree. You’ve earned the honor, now bestowed. MASONS in HEAVEN, THE 34th DEGREE
