Through the night of April 25-26, my father was murdered in his home. He was a hard working, generous, loving man that will be greatly missed. Unfortunately, he had no life insurance. My youngest brother is 6 years old and was born with spina bifida and is wheelchair bound. My stepmother is a stay at home mom with limited resources. I am asking all family, friends, friends of friends, and all those with the same generous spirit to help my family in this very tragic time in our lives. I know my father would have done the same for anybody, friend or stranger. I thank you for taking the time to read this and hope that his lasting impression and kind heartedness will live on through the lives he graced. Thank you.

Dad's viewing is this afternoon starting at 4 pm at Broussard's on Major Drive. Funeral will be held at 2 pm on Sunday at Broussard's with burial precession to Forest Lawn Cemetery on Pine St.

Again, thank everyone for all of your support in this very difficult time for our family. Knowing how many lives my father touched in any way only serves to prove what kind of man he is. His memory will live on through us all.
