“To the World you might be One Person, but to One Person You Might be the World.”
The World lost the sweetest man on December 20, 2021. He was the best dancer, card player, story teller, old romantic, family man. He loved to golf and fish and host family gatherings. He very much enjoyed watching his kids and grandkids play sports. He was so adventuresome and traveled to all 50 States with his loving wife. When asked a few weeks before he died out of all his travels - which one was his favorite, he said the vacation where all of his kids and grandkids traveled to Estes Park together. He loved his wife fiercely and once said if he knew the life he was going to have - instead of getting down on one knee to ask her to marry him, he would have gotten down on two knees and begged her. He never went a day without saying “I love you” to her.

He will be forever missed.

Memorial services will be 10AM, Saturday, January 22, 2022 at Park Lawn Funeral Home, 8251 Hillcrest Rd., Kansas City, Missouri.
