On July 19th 2022, he was diagnosed with terminal cancer. seven months ago he drove from Texas to Florida to be with his family for Christmas. Two months ago he was dancing at his grandsons wedding. One month ago he golfed with his grandsons and son in laws. 4 days before his death he sat in his daughter and son in laws pool surrounded by his entire family cracking jokes.
We pray that you rest in peace and thank you for the amazing family you created. We will never forget you because you have given us so many wonderful memories.
