Pa was many things to many people but to his family he was everything. Pa was known for his big bear hugs and even bigger smile. He always had time to listen and never met a stranger. His quick wit and wicked sense of humor will be missed tremendously. Pa also had this incredible ability to turn any situation into a positive one simply by “looking for the lesson”. No matter what he went through in life he always kept his faith and humor.
His greatest love was his wife Milly and his proudest achievements were his two children Rich and Chris. You would also be hard pressed to find a man who loved his grandchildren more than Pa did.
His professional accomplishments range from maximum security prison guard to co-founding his own Nonprofit. However, his favorite pass time was hiking in the AZ desert and being with his family. Pa was born on Dec 26th and returned to his Heavenly Father on Aug 11th 2020. However, the impact that he left on this earth will last a hundred lifetimes.
