  1. My dad. The man I measure everyone else against. He touched anyone he met. Dad is so selfless and always took care of others quietly, made limitless food pantry donations, monthly St. Jude and wounded warrior donations and never passed up the opportunity to help someone in need. The family he and my mom built 59 years ago was always his pride. He had an amazing bond with each grandchild and knew how to make everyone feel special. He had a great sense of humor, always up for a great joke or silly story. Dad’s garage was admired by all and his meticulous way of organizing and arranging is something. The way my dad loved my mom is something so rare and special. They were always more than life partners, they were an unstoppable team. The world lost a true gem and we will do our best to live up to your legacy Dad. We will love you forever.

  2. Papa was the best grandpa i could ever ask for. We have some of the best memories from me and leah taking random pieces of wood putting some nails in it and giving it to my parents as a “gift” to putting on the tv and watching Friends together. Sleepovers were my favorite. We would build, go on walks to the big rock (those were always the best), have blueberries with your “special sauce”, then watch wheel of fortune (which you said i should go on when im older because i got so many right). These memories will always stay with me forever and ever. You were so nice, caring, and loving to all. I love you grandpa so very much. I looked up to you so much and will continue to do so. You were the biggest role model. Everyone wants to be like papa. I love you so much and will miss you forever.

  3. Grandpa,
    It’s hard to put into words how remarkable and admirable you truly were. You were a role model to many; you set the bar high and never skipped a beat. You were always there when we needed you to be or wanted you to be. You always put your family first and proved to us that family is the most important thing. You accepted us and loved us from the moment we all met. We missed out on knowing you for the first few years of our life, but was lucky enough for all the years to come and all the memories to be made. Watching and witnessing the love that you and Grandma had for each other truly set an example for what true love really is. Louis and I aspire to have what you and Grandma had, all 59 years of it. You created a beautiful family and worked hard every single day to provide for them, how inspiring! When Louis, Nate, and Owen made their mark in the world, you were there- with open arms. They loved you and I can’t wait to share all of the amazing memories and stories of you with them so that they don’t miss out and we can continue your legacy. You left an everlasting mark on all of us and we will forever remember and love you for it. “Love like Crazy,” is our family song and every time I hear the lyrics I think of the love you and grandma had for each other. I’ll leave them with you….
    “Just ask him how he did it, he’ll say pull up a seat
    It’ll only take a minute, to tell you everything
    Be a best friend, tell the truth, and overuse I love you
    Go to work, do your best, don’t outsmart your common sense
    Never let your prayin’ knees get lazy,
    And love like crazy”

    Please watch over us and guide us through life, we love you.

  4. To my one and only papa. You always had the biggest smile on your face and were so happy. I loved just sitting and chatting with you in the morning of sleepovers and looking at the morning paper with the puzzles and comics. We always had so much fun together and I will always and forever cherish those memories we made together. You were more then an amazing person and I will miss you more then you will ever know. You were the best hugger and I will miss squeezing you every time I said goodbye. It makes me so happy that you loved all the shows I was in and how you were so proud of me. Thank you for being my biggest fan and #1. Love you forever, Leahbell

  5. Dad,
    No words can explain how much you mean to me. You have been so important to me in my life. I hope I can become half the man you are.
    Love you.

  6. Dad, I wish I knew where to begin…but I don’t….In the 57 yrs we shared, you were my dad, my best man, my mentor, and my best friend….you have taught me so many things..from being able to solve problems and fix just about any household issues, to being the best Dad / step dad..and Grandpa that I can. You showed me how to love unconditionally which is a gift in itself. Our golf foursome will never be the same …our lives will never be the same …I can only look up and smile hoping I make you proud every day! I love you till we meet again.. Garrett.

  7. candleGrandpa,

    What else is there to say that no one else has? You were a man who didn’t always say a lot, but when you did, it was always important. You had the ability to make everyone and anyone feel like the most important person in the room when they were with you. You loved “classic” movies and music, golf, handy work, and time spent with your family. No one was more important to you than Grandma and even after 59 years, you always had a twinkle in your eye when you looked at her. You’ve been a role model to us all of how to live our lives as strong, humble, and selfless people, and how to love your family and put them above everyone else.

    There’s no one who will ever make a pancake with our initials like you, or make us smile like you did. You left a legacy and touched so many people’s lives. I know you’ll continue to guide each and everyone one of us in the same way, subtly, as well as look out for all of us. You always used to end a phone call with, “Thanks for calling,” so I’ll end with: thank you for sharing your life with all of us. I love you grandpa.
