Family and Friends,
I am so sorry for your loss. He was a good friend and neighbor for a very long time. He had the energy of ten people and loved working on cars at the Belmont Garage. If he wasn't at the Shipyard or working on a car, he was working in his yard. As busy as he was, he always had time to help a friend. He loved peach ice cream and I can see him now turning the crank on my back porch. I will miss him.
