    My brother-in-law was a kind, soft spoken man. I was very honored to have him walk me down the aisle almost 36 years ago to marry my Don. He always saw the good in people. He was a wonderful story teller about his adventures on the road and through his long life. He dearly loved animals of every kind and truly adored my sister and his beloved Brittany Spaniels. I will miss him but have wonderful memories of him always.
