He was a loving husband to his late wife of 43 years of marriage.

He was a spoiling grandfather to his grandkids and always made sure that they had it all. He was a loving brother to all his siblings. He worried so much about them all. There wasn’t anything he wouldn’t do for all of them. He had such a big heart, he would give the last dollar he had to a complete stranger if they were in need.
He will be sadly missed by so many lives he touched and had the honor to know him.
