He was a kind, sensitive man, who always expressed unselfish love and dedication to his family and friends. We will. forever miss the sound of his "Coors" beer can crack open, followed by a huge smile and a long "aaaaah."

He left us all precious memories that will forever live in our hearts. He will forever be our "Ray of Light."
