father had a very keen mind, and his friends all enjoyed
his sense of humor. He was a great crooner and whistler
and could play a mean mouth harp. He loved to work with
his hands. He was an auto mechanic for many years before
retiring. Then he was an antique storeowner. And in his
last years he loved to spend hours on his CB radio and
piddle with wood creations out of his garage. He fashioned
special corner knickknack shelves that are cherished gifts
of loved ones left behind.

miss you Daddy, and a wait the day when we will be able
to see you again!
