I remember a friendly giant when I first met him I was scared of him but as I got to know him I found him a soft spoken voice and a great sense of humor. I remember when they were digging around the basement ,us kids decided we were going to dig to china . The only time I ever seen him upset telling us how dangerous to play there. Our deepest condolences to the family , sending our love and hugs from our family to your family.


Was one of the kindest men I have ever met. Was honoured to have been part of his family. He loved his candy bars that’s for sure. Rest In Peace my friend the ball game is over.
