As head of our big family he was also our protector. He will be greatly missed by those who knew him. Especially friends he met for coffee each weekday morning to socialize and have a cup of coffee with. But most of all he will be missed by all his family more than words could ever be expressed. May he finally Rest in Peace. Free from pain. We love you dad. More than you ever knew.
