  • Grandpa was the most unselfish person I have ever known. He never hesitated to give anything he could for his family. He was a great example of service. He was famous in the family for his stories (even if Grandma contradicted him!) and for his long “lectures” when giving directions for doing something. I had a special relationship with Grandpa. When I was younger I would stand behind the same door (in their kitchen) and jump out screaming as he walked by. I laughed so hard as he jumped, but then he yelled at me for doing it. 🙂 I will miss you, Grandpa. I’m glad you are seeing your daughter again. Please tell Mom I love her and miss her everyday. 🙂

  • A humble and simple man who was larger than life and brilliant beyond words. I will miss my dearly loved uncle who impacted our lives with his greatness and love.

  • His friends at Sky Tractor

    The sweetest man I have ever met, my dad Ron thought the world of him and became very close friends over the years, they both had a”very special passion” for Lutefisk, I’m sure they are both reminiscing about the good times, we will all miss you, condolensces to all the family members.

  • The Vasquez Family

    We are sorry to hear about the passing of your loved one. Words don’t always ease the pain when you are grieving the death of a loved one, but we hope you will find hope in Jesus’ promise of the redirection hope (Acts 24:14) when he will rise up tho sleeping in death (John 11:11) restoring them back to life, on the renewed paradise( John 5:28,29; Luke 24:43) what a wonderful blessing to look forward too. Until then, may Jehovah God (Psalms 83:18) grant you peace and comfort during this grievous time. – Matthew 5:4. http://WWW.JW.ORG
