I can't even begin to tell you the sadness that we feel hearing of this tremendous loss. He was always such a bright spot in our day anytime he came to the office. Our hearts are broken knowing that we will never see him or hear his cute little jokes again. Please accept our deepest sympathies.
All our love,
Heather and Michaelina

Always my favorite "uncle." Every childhood memory brings me to a memory of my favorite "aunt & uncle." Uncle Jr was the kind of man that left an impression for life. He was always the sweetest, kindest person on the planet. His smile and laugh will forever be embedded in my brain. The world lost a good one, but so very thankful that we'll see him again one day. Prayers to his kind and wonderful family. Love, Hugs and kisses from Florida.

This is such a sad day for me. I remember going hunting together.Everyone was upset that I fell asleep on a big rock,and they woke me up,and noticed deer droppings and deer prints next to me. I wasnt asked to go hunting again.Uncle Jr (actually Cousin Jr) came to many baseball games I played in,and would brag about me to his friends.I think he embellished a bit Lol. When He came to our home that smile lit up a room,and of course. Aunt Katherine was always on his arm.The best compliment I was paid was from some family members said
my marriage reminded them of Uncle Jr,and Aunt Katherine. What a beautiful couple. My condolences to the family,and we will be together one day. Bill and Sandy Peterson
