We always knew the day would come when Dad would leave office. This was to be his last term as Mayor and then would come retirement. Sadly, retirement came early. Thursday morning, June 27, 2013, our lives were dramatically changed.
Dad left us suddenly and peacefully that morning leaving behind a wife, two daughters, a son, family, friends and a community in which he dedicated his life. The void he left in our family will forever be unmatched but the devotion and love he had for all of us will always be remembered.
