He loved his family and was the protector for his brothers and sisters while growing up. His family extended beyond his blood, to his wife’s family. He loved the Myers family as much as he loved his own family.
Throughout all of life’s obstacles he maintained a positive attitude. He had a strong faith in God, which he instilled in his children and grandchildren.
