Dad grew up hard in rural southwestern Wisconsin, so poor he said they "never knew when the Depression hit". Worked for & retired from the Burlington Railroad, including handling trains full of bombs, POW's, and troops during World War II. That work took him to Savannah, Ill where he was also a volunteer fireman, met the woman who would become his wife & my mother, and where I was born! Moved to Little Rock, Ark (mom's hometown) in 1960 where he fell in love with the warmer winters and became a passionate Razorback fan. At his request he was laid to rest with his Razorback red blazer, and a Razorback pin on his lapel. He was a kind, loving father who also gave his life caring for mom the last seven years of their lives after her 1992 stroke. Dad was so proud of his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. I love you dad, and miss you. I look foreward to seeing you again on the other side. -Mike-
