He was a man with the heart of a lion and very dear to us! He was the only Uncle we had still living and, as he always said, I never wanted to be the last. He is finally joining all his brother-in-laws, his sister, and mom and dad . He was totally committed to his family which included his wife Marietta of 65 years, his two daughters Delores and Kathy, his 6 grandchildren and great grandchildren right down to every niece and nephew and their families. He was supportive and active in all of our lives and will be remembered forever! My family will truly miss him! With sincere sympathy,
