In lieu of flowers, please pay it forward with kindness. He often would buy children he saw in a store a toy, a book and even a fishing rod. He always had candy in his pocket to share. His smile told his life story.
Thank you to the many people who lovingly cared for him, Emerald Coast Hospice, Brookdale Assisted Living and his church family at First Presbyterian Church.
