He was kind, caring, and gentle. He had a unique way of making everyone he met feel important. He was an amazing husband and father - often taking his girls on dates and showering them with love, silly stories and small gifts. He loved the Vikings (SKOL!) and playfully pouted when his daughter wore her Green Bay jersey.
Jude was a master storyteller! It wasn't uncommon to meet him for a quick cocktail only to be with him a few hours later laughing along to his stories of life. He was truly one of a kind and will be missed greatly by so many.
Irish Friendship Toast to Jude:
"There are good ships, there are wood ships;
Ships that sail the sea, but the best ships are friendships and may the always be..."
