We lost our Dad and who will be greatly missed. He wasn’t an average Dad that said kind words and I love you. He was simple when it came to that kind of feeling he had for you, if he liked you then he gave you a hard time and you were a “ok” in his book. He was a good friend to many and a great papaw to his grandkids and great-grand kids. Our dad liked to play Euchre, Bingo, drink beer and aggravate everyone (that was his way of showing love). He was our guy that knew it all… he always had the answer (wrong or right) he loved to talk about his family and what they were doing daily. I don’t think he ever realized how much he would be missed. He can rest easy now and visit with his other family and friends till we see him again. Forever loved by your family.
