We miss Grampa/Big Grampa so much already. It will not be the same without him, but how blessed are we to have had him with us for so long?! Rest easy, Grampa. You are loved more than we could ever put into words.

Big Grampa was the best man I’ve ever known in my lifetime! He had names he called all his grandkids and he would always greet me with a big smile and say Kelley Jeanne ‘my-gal’ (instead of Michael which was my last name). I will cherish every memory I have with him...there are so many! He taught me how to paddle a canoe and a rowboat, and how to just enjoy the simple little things in life. He loved taking walks and one fond memory I have was when I was very young we would walk down the dirt road from the camp and pick fresh wild blackberries for our breakfast early in the morning. Walks after a big dinner were always nice too...he always made sure to walk on the outside to protect me. I will love and miss you forever Grampa! You were certainly one of a kind! XOXO
