Pops loved to go fishing at Peckerwood Lake, working in his garden and spending time with his family. He loved telling fish stories. He was a dedicated husband, father, father-in-law, grandpa, brother and friend who loved his family deeply. He will be greatly missed, but never forgotten. His favorite saying was “In a 100 years, it won’t matter.” We love you Pops.
