Loved to talk to Gerald and Helga. He was usually smiling most of the time. Will greatly miss him. He loved family. Always helping my Father in law Everett if he could. He also helped raise money for people in a bike club he was in for people in need. He looked really good in his uniform in the Army. He will be missed. Loved him.
