John and Marty, very sorry to hear of your Dads passing. I remember a quiet man but he always had a smile. (And you both may be laughing right now, because maybe he wasn’t a quiet man, I don’t know) but when we visited your home as young girls, your Mom always wanted to learn the “new” ways we were dancing these days and your Dad would sit quietly and just smile at us! Miss those days when there was family gatherings. Hugs to you both, Debbie Geil

I’m sorry to hear about your dad Marty and John, i always enjoyed joking with him over the years, although it’s been quite awhile since I’ve seen him. I do know from those early conversations that he was proud of you both!

So sorry for your loss. Your Dad is now with your Mom. Both meant the world to us and I will cherish all my memories. They both loved you guys and they will always be with you. May they rest in peace. Nancy and Jack Culligan

So sorry to hear about the passing of your father. May the memories of both your Mom and Dad be a help at this time. I have happy memories sitting at the kitchen table having coffee with your mom and your dad poking his head in the back door to say hi! I also remember how much he loved hunting in the fall. You were both such good sons to your parents. Take care. “May the God of all Comfort” comfort you.
