  • Our dad was a wonderful man. All of us kids weren’t even his but He took us all in and raised us as his own. He has 4 children he adopted and I am the step child that stuck beside him when the rest left him. My love for him is endless. He was so good to me growing up. I have so many memories of the wonderful things he did for me and I will treasure them. He had a need for speed so I will be watching for those burn outs in the sky as he tries to make those beautiful WINGS work. Fly high DAD…

  • He will be missed. He was such a wonderful cousin.. We had some fun times. Fly high Bob. Can sure say loved family.
