This dear man will be missed. He visited my father-in-law quite a bit, so I was honored to hear some of his wit plus stories. And to see him at functions of the Cultural society.
Our sympathies to the family and especially his wife Theresa.

Our deepest sympathies on the loss of your dear father and grandfather. I always remember him with a smile on his face. I often heard how he and my mom played cards at the Senioren Mittags. May he rest and peace and their “heavenly” card games continue.
