His influence and leadership in the construction industry in South and Central Florida over the last 60 years can still be seen as churches, hotels, and many other commercial buildings still stand with his mark left on them. A true outdoorsman, he loved fishing, hunting, and watching over his pristine backyard overlooking Lake Florence. He enjoyed traveling this country with his family, being out on the water in the Florida Keys and enjoying a good Snickers bar in his tree stand while hunting. He will forever be remembered for his soul piercing blue eyes, his handsome sly grin and a witty remark on his lips.
A loving husband, father, brother, uncle, grandfather, and great grandfather that will truly be missed.
Please join us in celebrating the life of this wonderful man.
