If you knew our dad, you knew his greatest love was his walk with Jesus. We would walk by his room at night and listen to him read the Bible aloud every night. He treasured time with his family. His other love was for his cats. He was the cat whisperer. He gave many cats over his lifetime a loving home. Not just cats, but he had respect for all God’s creatures. They say animals know ones’ true intentions. Even on his last day, his grandsons’ 90 pound pit bull was wildly persistent on saying goodbye. Sure enough, man’s best friend Buddy, got what he wanted. He loved to garden and took such pride in the crops he grew, especially tomatoes, and sharing with his family and friends. He had a love for fishing. The last few years he didn’t get out much to fish but shared in the enjoyment of it with his grandson Eric. They had good stories to share with each other. He enjoyed watching all the St. Louis Cardinals games. This was a passion he shared with his son John. He struck a homerun out of the ballfield when he took the journey to Heaven.
The family will hold a service at a later date.
