I am so sorry to hear this. Please extend my sympathy to all. Maryann Scudder, February 28, 2020 My brother, what a fight you battled! You were so strong through your many challenges. You always wanted it to be just right for everyone. What a plantsman you were with your knowledge and love of gardening, you were the go to guy, just like dad is. We had so much fun together during our childhood, I followed right behind you with your silliness and mischievousness, but big brother usually got the blame. We all were so happy for you when you found the love of your life, Denise, a match made in heaven. What wonderful memories I will always have, until we meet again, love you big brother. Laura Nelson, February 1, 2020 Denise, My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family. Love, Jackie Jackie Williams, January 30, 2020 To my dear brother, I already miss you so much, but I know you are at peace now. You were so strong and supportive of your family to the very end and always found ways to make us laugh often! Your humor was a hidden talent to some, but your siblings always knew what a little character you were growing up. I love you so much and will miss you always. Keeping you in my prayers until we meet again little brother. Sherrill Fosha, January 29, 2020
