He is survived by his 2 sons, Gordon and Michael and 8 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren!

He worked hard and loved even harder! He was devoted to his family and friends as well as work. He was always so calm natured and rarely got worked up! He looked forward to seeing the many people who looked up to him, and was the comedian and true life to any party!

His memory will remain for generations to come, I don't think people will run out of stories to tell! He had the gift to entertain and keep people smiling. After Lynda passed he Ya ya ya! Sometimes in life we don't always get everything we want! When I call, you answer! carried on the legacy of her and became an even better person, bringing perfection to an already near perfect person!

Giving, kind, helpful, thoughtful, sincere, selfless, intelligent, prideful and peaceful are just a few of the words to describe him. No duplicates or replacements could ever come close to the man he was. May you forever rest in peace and watch from above as your legacy is carried on!
