Daddy loved spending time on his farm with his cows, driving his tractor, and playing the piano. He loved his dogs, his cats and of course his six girls.

He will be greatly missed by all who loved him.

Thank you to Adams County Nursing Center staff and Compassus Hospice, Dr. Ed Daly, and Dr. Chuck Borum for taking care of him.
