One could not ask for a better friend in any situation. He was "Mr. Dependable" for his lovely wife, Lutrelle, a wonderful family and so many others--he was his 'own man.' He will be greatly missed by those who knew him. No one can fill another's place so I deem it one of the most fortunate things in my life that our paths crossed and that we shared so much in those 70+ years.
What a great role model he was and will always be.
