“My father had a big heart and an even bigger personality. If he met you he
considered you to be a friend. Being the son of a dairy farmer, he loved all
things dairy especially buttermilk and ice cream, but no chocolate, thank
you. And if you wanted to win his heart, offer him a root-beer float. He
played the saw, never wore a long-sleeve shirt except to church, loved
big-band music and could ‘cut a mean rug’ with my mother – against who he
never won a game of Chinese checkers. Gardening was one of his favorite past
times and he took it seriously. Even in my small garden he produced bumper
crops. One of my favorite memories is of us taking fresh vegetables to my
neighbors. My father never spoke harshly to anyone or about anyone, and in
all my life did he ever even raise his voice to me.”
Funeral services will be Wednesday, April 26, 2017 at 11:00am at the
