One of the best I ever worked with. a good friend since 1960. He will be missed…
So very sorry for your loss. We are sure he will be dearly missed. Our prayers go out to the family.
Jane and I extend our deepest sympathy on the passing of your Dad. He was a fine man. When we had the occasion to see him he was always willing to talk about local sports especially high school basketball. May he rest in peace. May God bless you and your family.
He was a gem, well-loved by all who knew him, will certainly be missed.
I hope we all leave here in the same way your father did – loved, cherished, and respected. The challenge would be trying to be as funny and charming as he was.
