He will be greatly missed by all in the church and community, as by his kind and friendly disposition he was a very devoted husband and father. May God graciously comfort them, and grant them a happy reunion in heaven.
     He leaves behind wife, three children, three brothers, three sisters and a large circle of friends to mourn his untimely departure, but thankful for his christian example and the clear tokens of his salvation.
