Over the years Jan and Carol also enjoyed the Wholly Joe’s Cruise in’s at Polaris on Thursday’s, where many treasured friendships were formed.
Always loyal and honorable, he could also at times a bit goofy and sweet to those closest to him. He was at his best when surrounded by his 46 Ford and his children and grandchildren, of whom he was most proud.
