He will be remembered as a devoted and loving son, husband, father, brother, uncle and friend to all who knew him. He lived a joyful life, always with a smile on his face, because of his personal relationship with God, which was his highest priority. He was an amazing father who was a Godly example to his children. He was a model citizen that served his country and left a legacy for his children and nephews to follow.

"But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain. Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain." There will not be a day that will go by without a tear to relive the pain for our son, brother, father, husband, and friend. Until the day when we, too, will join him in heaven.
