    A man beloved by cousins of all degrees. He was truly one of the Greatest Generation. He was proud of his service to his country and his community was thankful for his service to country, church, family and community. A tower of quiet strength whose word was his bond. There is not a lot that can be added to the statement – a life well-lived.
