My uncle was a good man. He was fun to be around and at the same time a down to business person. Always business. But never to busy to give me wise advise. (Wish I would have listened!)😊. He always had a twinkle in his eye when he talked to you. He treated me good and gave me a few fresh starts. I’ll miss him. RIP Uncle!! You are in good company now. ✝️🛐
My condolences to the family. My heart is with you all.

Words cannot express how much I love ❤️ and will miss you. You always taught me to be strong and work hard to accomplish goals in life . You told me there are 3 kinds of people in this world , ones that wish they could make it happen , ones that make it happen and those who ask What happened ? You made it happen dad and I will always be proud you were my dad . God bless you dearly ! Your number 1 daughter SHARLAND
