Desperately loved by his family. Fought addiction to drugs and alcohol for 45 years, went as long as 12 years sober and numerous shorter periods. Loved his wife and children as much as he could love. Finally weakened and sick, he passed away with his wife and daughter at his side 6/26/2014. He is desperately missed.
If you didn't know him, there is no way to explain him, and if you did there is no need...We miss him more than he would have understood.
