Helen writes " he was a wonderful father; I think that was a school board picture. He used to say "Lincoln was born on my birthday" (LOL). He loved his family; enjoyed the simple life, didn't need anything more than his wife and family to be happy. Played cards with the guys now and then and enjoyed a fishing trip once a year. And always he paid for every thing he bought; that went back to the depression days when he lost all he had in the bank. They really learned how to make ends meet on what they had. He never wanted charity, was a very proud man. We were so very blessed with 2 wonderful parents."
