A wonderful man has left us. A soul full of love, a heart that never stopped giving who will be greatly missed by family and loved ones. May those who knew him find God's love holding them, His strength supporting them. He was taken from this world too soon, but he will find loved ones waiting to welcome him Home. My love to all Family and friends.

My heart goes out to the family. I never had the privilege to meet him but I know his baby sister, Lisa, and I understand he was a father figure for her and she is truly special. He was a wonderful man that I can see by reading of him.
Stay strong and know he will forever be with you all.
