He helped other people even when he didn’t have to. He took on things that would make his life harder but he did it anyway because he couldn’t bare to let something bad happen to anybody. Even at a cost to himself, he put other people first. He liked the simple things, though he worked very hard. He will be missed and I pray he found his peace because he deserves that very much. Rest now because your work is done and know that you are very loved.

Also when he told me & my daughter, Faith he would be her there as he dad! He was such a good man, w a huge, loving, giving, caring heart!!! Love you dad/grandpa!! U will never be forgotten- Amanda 😘
