Our thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of loss. My first memory of your dad and mom was a visit by them to dad’s house on Windy Hill. They arrived on a full dresses motorcycle, saddlebags, leather jackets and leather hat. They left quite a first impression. What a cool aunt and uncle.

With love,
Gary and Darlene Hoover

Very sorry to hear this news, but if there is a bright side, he did enjoy a good long and happy life. We had a lot of great times together with John and Mitzi and many fun golf experiences over the years. He was great guy and he will be missed. Always very sad to see a good friend pass.

Our condolences to Jackie and Randy.
