I am heartbroken to say that this wonderful loving father, grandfather, and amazing friend to many has left this world to be with the Lord and his loving wife.
Tragically he fell hitting his head while working in front of his house last Monday and was taken to BAMC. He later had emergency surgery at BAMC to relieve the swelling from the fall. By Friday he was doing so well, we had a great day talking. Then shorty after I left the hospital he "coded" they were unable to bring him back. I was heartbroken and devastated by how he could be here one minute and gone the next.
He touched so many lives with his stories, hospitality and mentoring at the Local 142. We will miss HIM most of all. He loved hunting, cooking and connecting with friends and family. I know many will miss his hot sauce, beans, brisket and conversation. We need assistance with his final resting place. He gave all that he had while he was here on earth. I am struggling with just funding his funeral, Any contribution will help.
