He came to Missouri to visit his daughter and decided to stay. He fell in love with the country here.
We met online, emailing then we first met was a birthday party at the park for a friend of Shawna’s. Our favorite song was “I Will Always Love You” by Stevie Wonder. Traveling around together seeing the country and fishing. He enjoyed the scenery, and everything was new to him everywhere we went, and people would always compliment us when they saw us. He enjoyed fishing. Bolivar Landing, Pomme de Terre, and Feller’s Lake were among his favorites. We moved in with my parents and after they passed, we decided to stay there, later raising chickens, dogs and cats.
Preceded in death by his parents, his first wife, Carol. His brother Ray, and his sister Shirley.
