Dad was a wonderful, caring, devoted family man. He had a great sense of humor, sharp wit and was always ready with a joke and good story. Dad graduated from Palmer Chiropractic College in 1946, was a long time retiree of Kraft Foods and worked until the age of 85 at various jobs. He passed his strong work ethic down the generations. He loved to deer hunt and looked forward to the season every year. It was not about getting that deer but about being with his hunting partners. Dad treated everyone he met with kindness and made many friends in his 90 years. His strong faith never wavered. He was a devout Catholic and a remarkable example to his family. On Aug. 2, 2014 he accepted his invitation to heaven.
