A man of good nature and humor, our dear father was a man of great dedication to his family, always a pillar of strength and courage. He was a man of impeccable character and a heart of compassion and love. We will miss him dearly but we also know he is in Paradise with our Lord and Father in heaven, reunited in Spirit with his beloved wife Eleanor "Elly." May he rest in peace.
