He will be missed by family and friends.
Since my dad's passing he has 18 more grandchildren, one of them rest beside him. Almost 30 great-grandchildren and that number is still growing.
Outside of his family he had one passion, his 1958 white Corvette with a black rag top. I remember him picking me up from school or dropping us off in it. It was so.... cool. Picking my sister and I up from our local swimming pool in it. It seems he was always tinkering with it out in the garage.
