My grandfather was the toughest, most unremarkable person ever. He was unlike anyone I have ever met. He always had so many stories and life lessons to share with us. He was unconventional in the best way possible. Grandpa “grrrrr” you are truly missed. I would give anything to have another big bear hug and to hear you say, “hi baby!” We miss you so much and we know how hard you fought. Any time Johnny Cash comes on, I will always think of you. Thank you for the endless laughs and unconditional love

I loved listening to his stories about his younger years. His favorite thing was to debate with us and push our buttons.
He made me the tough, independent person I am today. He may have shown me tough love but he always supported me no matter what.
I was unable to say goodbye due to COVID restrictions in the hospital. It went downhill very quickly and we were only communicating through facetime. I regret being far away and I was not able to go see him.
Thank you for always pushing me to be better.
