He will be remembered for his hilarious jokes, sense of humor and wildly entertaining stories.  Additionally his unfailing work ethic, his generous smile, and his willingness to help anyone.  Most importantly, he was a proud father and grandfather. His legacy is his children and grandchildren. Time spent with family and friends brought him the most joy.
