Over the years, he was awarded several accomplishments and multiple "Insurance Man of the year" awards.
Some of "PaPa's" greatest joys in life were being involved, participating and coaching baseball, basketball, golf, football, T-ball, and dance, for his kids and grandkids. He was their greatest fan!! Missing a game was not an option. From the front yard to the ball field, "Hard Hitting" was always coaching. He recently enjoyed the opportunity to help coach his grandson in the Taylorsville baseball program. He was a loving family man whose face would light up whenever his grandchildren would walk through the door and visa versa. He truly is and will always be the heart of our family and the ultimate example of love.
