Soon after retirement he moved to Arizona, where he spent the last 20 years of being close to almost all of his family as most of them lived in Arizona, too.
He is survived by his wife Sharon, his three sons George, Marc and Don, his two daughters, Kim and Leandra, and his nine grandchildren Brenna, Hailey, Kellen, Taylor, Sommer, Randy, Tyler, Jack and Holly.
Our father always taught us to work hard for what we wanted in life. He always preached to us about earning respect and how to keep it. He always told us to lend a hand and expect nothing in return, be there for family and friends, no matter what. Our father was well respected in his field and performed his duties with honor and dignity. He has left a hole in our hearts, but we know that he would want us to stay strong, be there for each other and fill the hole with many memories we shared with him, both as a family and as individuals. Dad and Grandpa, you will be missed but never forgotten. Until we all meet again. We love you with all our heart and souls.
