Cause of death: Pulmonary embolism 
Loved, cherished and forever in our hearts
"When the moment comes in my life when
people are talking about my last days,
I am determined that they will say: He was
devoted to his wife, Melanie, and his children
Christine, Nicole and Ava. He gave every ounce
of his being not for himself, but for those whom
he cared about most, God and his family."
