Born and raised in Richmond Heights, he grew up in and went to the same church and school that he sent his children to. He served his country in WWII and married his wife in 1952. He never had a need for things or adventures, but he worked hard, raised a family and took care of his own. He could fix and build anything. He enjoyed fishing and woodworking. He was a man of faith, a man of community and a servant to all; dedicating his time helping his church and neighbors. He was a good man who built a beautiful life and his memory will be cherished for generations to come.
