“So sorry for your loss. He was a great man that will be missed. I have a lot of great memories of him and my dad (Roy) on the fire department. He was a great 4h leader and was always willing to help. He had a great sense of humor. I will never forget his reaction when he came out after a 4h meeting and seen that we had turned his little white s10 sideways in the parking spot.”
