He became a civil servant and spent 18 yrs as a computer operator, retiring from McClellan AFB. In retirement he worked with the Senior Gleaners , volunteered with his church and helped raise his grand kids. His most treasured possession was his family. Married for 60 years he was preceded in death by his wife Elizabeth.

    Dad, I can feel your love. Even now you are standing with your arm around Mom, and you are smiling. You were the best Grandpa ever, to my kids. I will learn how to allow, happy and sad to both be going on at the same time! You were a good steward of your life. I will make an endeavor to do the same.
