Dad was such a kind and loving spirit. He was a father, grandfather, and friend that would go above and beyond for anyone in need. He was a true “family man.” Our hearts are breaking, as we say goodbye, but we rest in the assurance that we will be together again. Love you, Daddy.
Our family would like to express our deepest appreciation to everyone; family, friends, neighbors, and Summa Hospice for all the love and care given to dad. A special thank you to our cousin, Kelly Julian, for each and everything you do.
