Grew up on a dairy farm at Red Oak, grade school at St Michaels, graduated from Ripley High School. He worked and retired from Ford Motor Company. Was in Air Force and entertained his barracks with made up letters from home. After retiring he made and sold custom clocks, sports memorabilia, and sports cards. He was a 300 bowler. He and his wife Jan were avid UK fans and ran a “Cat Trackers” bus to all the games. Their life and home was filled blue and white. With a Pepsi during the day and a drink in hand he joked, kidded, and entertained, even in his alhzimers unit. He loved to travel in Europe and United States to historical places or anywhere country or blue grass was playing. He was a loving son, brother, husband, uncle and stepfather, grandfather, great grandfather.He was a good friend and never knew a stranger. I know he is up there in a laid back chair, watching the “Cats” and eating that beloved big bowl of ice cream.
