From His Grandchildren:
My Grandfather was hero to his children and grandchildren. The most important thing in his life was his family.
He served his Country and Community. He was in Search and Rescue for fifteen years and the Military for four years.
Grandpa opened his heart and home to anybody in need and going through a hardship in life. His favorite thing to do was Sail and Hunt. He was also part of a Black Powder Club.
Best Grandpa in the entire world. Lot of love from all fifteen grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
We LOVE you shaky papa.
