CandlePrayers and sympathy to Karen, Steve, Ross and Lynda and all the children, grand and great grandchildren. Your dad, grandpa and great grandpa was a wonderful man. I remember him as my uncle; he was so kind and always a smile on his face, always a piece of butterscotch candy to be had. God be with you all.
