meaning of what a Christian should be. Many families were affected by his witness. He was also very involved in politics. He loved to visit and give his opinion on certain topics. He loved his family and enjoyed traveling to numerous ballgames
throughout the state watching his grandkids. Up until the end, he showed his family what true courage and strength meant. When you would leave him, his words would always be, “be careful”.
