So, “The long of the short of it is”, I was born, I blinked and it was over.

No building named after me, no monument erected in my honour, but the memories I take with me are many. Holding my baby girl, Katie, for the first time, the elation of the birth of my son, Thomas, and watching (and being a part of ) my step-daughters Kenya and Kadence become smart and inspiring women. If you had a moment, I would talk your ear off and pull out a few pictures of an angel, Melody, that called me Grandpa. I think I was a pretty nice guy, I certainly tried my best. I got a chance to know and love each and every friend, co-worker, colleague, and family member. How lucky can one man be? “Yah Baby”. If I wasn’t strategizing about the next latest and greatest sign I was going to build, I was enjoying a cold Budweiser and being the best sous chef I could be. That being said; time to let the secret out.... To make a good gravy, “never forget the importance of a good ROUX”, and always “give testers to the ones you love”. I had some health problems over the last couple of years, but survived (up until now anyways) with the love and support of the “love of my life”, BJ.

Here come the Jesters, one, two, three.........This isn’t good bye, it’s see you later.
