After leaving High School, he loved being a hard working farmer and continued to do that many years. He was the family historian, never forgetting who was born to who or anyone’s name.

It was evident to me that “Wimp” was a character when he came in and ordered a pink casket for his funeral. He was very frugal and the pink one was one of the lowest in price. He was one of a kind and will be missed by many.

He is survived by his nieces, nephew and a special friend, Mary Hellen Ward.

He was preceded in death by his parents and three sisters.
