Oh how I'm going to miss this gentle giant of a man! Visiting with him was always enjoyable and he never failed to tell us he appreciated us coming and to come back anytime. Even at 90 years old, his mind was absolutely sharp as a tack, and it was so unfortunate that his eyes and bad knees and then cancer kept him housebound in his final years. Claude was the last of my brother in laws, and though we never want to lose our loved ones, now he will be reunited with Dean so that makes me happy they will be together again after all these years. Rest in peace, dear Claude.

Love you cousins Patty Workman , September 12, 2020 I will miss going to dads house on Wednesdays and Sundays. I always looked up to dad and needed his seal of approval in life. Mom and dad will finally be reunited. I will always love and miss you dad! Michael Haston, September 9, 2020
