       He is survived by his wife, Kimberly and daughter, Micheala of the home; his mother, Catherine;  2 brothers, John (Becky) and Randy (Chrissy). He had 9 nieces and nephews and 6 great nieces and nephews whom he loved dearly. 

      He was a very passionate man who enjoyed fishing, gardening and helping care for his family and friends. 

   We would like to express our deepest gratitude and love for the Advanced Cardiac Care Clinic Team and the surgical and ICU teams at Memorial Mission Hospital who cared for him these last two and a half years with his LVAD.   

It was 2 ½ years we would not have had without Gods’ grace and the teams who took the knowledge God gave us and knew how to use it.   Micheala and I can’t tell you enough how much we love you.     

    He did not want any service but we will have a small celebration of life at Sunny View Community House on Friday, September 13th  from 6-8pm.   

  In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Advanced Cardiac Care Clinic at 

Memorial Mission Hospital to help give another the chance at life thru LVAD.
