Dad loved his family so much and would do anything for family or friends. Our foundation was The Lord. A true Godly man, even witnessing to all who came over the last few months. He loved Southern Gospel Music and his beautiful voice singing praises to God, will be missed. He loved South Dakota and visited as much as he could. He was surrounded by love of his children and the five dogs Sattchan, Lil Bit, Tink, Scooter, and grand dog Nibbler.
We have blessed assurance we will see him again, even though we miss him so very much.
Matthew 25:21 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
