Dad was a generous man who touched everyone who ever met him. He believed in family and the ties that bind them together. He always enjoyed fishing, farming, cook outs, telling jokes and funny stories, playing poker, shooting pool and watching football (New England Patriots) with his sons and family. He will forever be missed by all whoever knew or met him. He always had a major impact on his family and friends. He always looked for the best in everyone and tried to leave a little behind for a lasting effect. Love you Dad.
Funeral services will be held 12 noon on Thursday, March 22 at Daniels & Hutchison Funeral Home LLC, 212 N. Broad Street, Middletown. Visitation will be from 11-12. Entombment will be at Gracelawn Memorial Park.
