He used to tend to huge gardens by hand and would give bushels of veggies away, he was well known for his asparagus deliveries. Feeding the whole town. He would give you the shirt off his back and will never be forgotten. Now he will be free of pain able to move and will be birdwatching up there with Hazel up in heaven.

He had many sweet kind people in his later years who would do anything for him and continued to be our Earth Angels. His devoted sweet caregivers, many kind, dedicated, helpful neighbors, and dedicated close friends who spent a lot of time and energy keepin him goin, at the age of 92.
