Our Pap retired from Mineral Fiber in 2014 where he worked for 28 years. Pap loved westerns, fishing, old trucks, yard sales and tinkering in his garage with his son and grandsons. What Pap loved the most and was most proud of was his wife and family.
Pap was a loyal, faithful family man. He was devoted to seeing his kids and grandkids do well and be successful in whatever they chose to do. Pappy was supportive, good, kind-hearted, helpful and handy. Not a day went by without Pap providing constant humor, and one of his nicknames was “Mr. Entertainment.”
Pap will be greatly missed, loved and cherished by his family.
