A man of courage, living everyday the way he believed
He loved his wife, she was his guiding star
Devoted to his children, each the best and the most important
Every one he met was special, a man of deep faith

His life was too brief, how often does one this great come our way
Generosity was a strength, he looked for those in need
He cared for his church and his church family
Joy on the journey was his creed

Work was important and he worked with excellence
His vigor legendary, his service herculean
All around us are things he created, marvelous
We will miss his guiding hand so much

A strong shoulder
Listening ear
Quiet strength
He loved a good laugh

A helper, a leader, a shining star
His presence brightened the room
His care encouraged and strengthened
He wanted to help others

Never first in line but first to pay
Didn’t demand his rights but would fight for yours
Lived his life with power from Christ
He was God’s man first and last

Epic, significant, servant
A great man who loved the Lord with all his heart
He passed our way and called us friend
A blessing from the Lord, We loved him and will desperately miss him

We will see you again my friend
We won’t forget you
We will carryon with you in our heart
Adios, good bye, shalom
