He was a wonderful Grandpa, my fondest memories are of us fishing at Caesars Creek, he taught me so much. He knew how to do just about everything and his confidence and DIY spirit transcended to his Sons and ultimately to his Grandsons. He was always full of corny jokes and those are ones I still tell my kids today. He had a big impact on all of us and I miss him and think of him daily.
