Preceded in death by his brothers, Walter and John, and sisters, Lottie and Helen. He was a veteran of the U.S. Army serving his country during WWII and proud member of the Teamsters Local 710 for over 30 years. While known for his tough exterior and rough around the edges demeanor, he never failed to help someone out. He was a contradiction and many called him a “character”. He loved his 52 friends “Solitaire” and could play 24/7. He will be missed by his family and friends.
