He enjoyed listening to music and traveling the world with his wife. He cherished spending time with friends, and he especially loved a great steak and glass of wine. His happiest times were with his treasured grandchildren who always made him light up with a smile. He will always be remembered and loved by all who knew him.

I am so sorry for the family’s loss. Death is one of the hardest trials to cope with. May you find comfort from the future promise recorded in Revelation 21:4 which says “he [God] will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more.” We have assurance from God’s word the Bible and we can be certain God will fulfill the words from his word.
