    For 40 years my dad was my go to for everything. Have car issues, house issues he knew how to diagnose it and had the tools to fix it. He taught me to throw a baseball, swing a club, shoot a gun, wire an electrical box..the list goes on. My father was always willing to help anyone, in their finest or worst hour. Not being able to call or go by and talk politics, history, or the Buffalo Bills is going to be hard. I know he is in heaven doing just that. I will be sure to watch over mom, and be their for my kids as you always were for us. Please watch over us all, as you always have. I couldn't be more proud to have you as my father, and thank you for making me the person I am today. Dad, I love and miss you so much. I hope you are in peace and pain free, and look forward to the day we can sit and catch up. Go Bills!

    Grandpa, you were the only grandfather I ever had and ever needed. You filled my childhood with some of the best memories and I'll cherish them forever. You had the best humor and always made us kids giggle. Spending holidays and summer visits with you and grandma were truly a blessing. You took me in when I was a kid, you stood up for me, you always had my back. I hope I made you proud grandpa. Please watch over us up there.

    Love you forever,
    Your granddaughter Samantha.

    My dad will be greatly missed by our family. He lived an honorable life and was terrific dad and an absolutely amazing grandpa. He was always there for us or anyone who needed help. I wish I could have him longer but I know he wants to see his dad and mother also. It was extremely hard for him to leave my son and other grandchildren to the love he showed them was absolutely beautiful site for anyone to see. I love you dad now and forever. I know you made my life great and I owe it all to you and mom. I want to try to keep following your foot steps. Thanks for everything you did for me. I will take care of mom and have a great brother and sister who will do as well. The grandchildren will step us as they are as part of you also. Love you dad now and forever and god bless you
