I worked with JR and Margie for 6 years ,with Post Office, then SLU…both such pleasant people..JR was to me , a Solid Man, He looked strong, always reasonable, good sense of Humor…I enjoyed my time with JR and Margie…So sad for Margie and family…JR left to soon…But Happy for Him to be at Peace.

  2. My dad was a great man. He was kind and caring and giving and lived his life with love in his heart everyday. He was full of hope and understanding and a joy for life. He use to tell me he imagined god was standing next to him at all times and to live like he really was and if you did that then you would know you where on the right path. He really did try his best to be a good person and even on his off days he somehow always managed to stay positive. He had the best laugh and was a super strong man I can remember trying to fight with him play fight even as he got older and he was just as strong as ever. He loved to golf and play guitar and watch good movies. He was great at many things in life but I believe the one thing he was best at above all was being my dad. He was truly the best dad I could have ever asked for he could not have been a better dad to me. I am truly blessed to have had such an amazing man as my father to raise me and to teach me and to shape me into the person I am today. He will forever be in my heart and always be my super hero. I know how much he loved Margie and Jake and Michelle, his brothers and sisters, his aunts and uncles his cousins, his nephews and nieces, and all of his friends. He was truly a happy man, and each of us were all apart of the happiness that made up his life. I know he is smiling down on all of us. Until we meet again! I Love you dad now and always!
