September 8, 1921- February 8, 2013
My grandpa grew up during the depression learning that the only way to make a life is through hard work and perseverance. As a kid he remembered how he and his brother shared a room and often woke up with snow on their pillows as it had blown through the cracks in the walls.
He built his first house for he and my grandma with his own hands, actually digging the foundation with a hand shovel after his long day at work.
He served in the Navy during World War II. He started his own house building business and built many beautiful homes for families in Michigan.
He taught me how to fish and love the outdoors,
He taught me to go out and be driven to accomplish goals,
He taught me to have high expectations of myself and others,
He taught me how to laugh at myself,
He taught me to how to live.
He will be greatly missed.
