A simple man walked the Earth, not wealthy or famous, but rich in the love of and for his family and friends.
A man who always saw the world thru rose colored glasses and the glass half full. His only regret is leaving us all, especially the four little ones.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to the ICU nurses at Bellin for their wonderful and compassionate care of their Dad and the family.
