Diane and family,
thinking of you all during this sad time. I always remember him as a kind man with a hearty laugh. My memories of him were that he made great pirogies, brought Diane and I Volcano pizza during sleepovers as kids, and of course his prized blue Jag! He was lucky to have such a loving family.
