Husband, Father, Grandpa, Friend

Four roles merged into one human form. Husband, father, grandfather, friend. Husband of Barbara and Beth. Devoted, adventuresome, spiritually seeking. Always ready for a trip. Father of Greta Jean, Heidi, Holly, and Buddy.

Always trying to enlarge their talents and experiences. Always wanting the best for them. Traveling around the globe. Grandpa to 32 terrific, active grandkids. They all know that he loves them and can count on him for advice and adventure. He loves it when they succeed or sing his favorite hymns.

And finally, a friend to all, especially those who have lived on the earth and left. He does for them what they can't do themselves. A savior to those who have passed on, who one day will welcome him home. He has created a legacy of love - for family, friends, and the gospel of Jesus Christ.
