My husband was a Gunnery Sergeant in the Marine Corps (retired). He loved hunting and fishing. He had a heart of gold and would do anything to help people that needed it. He enjoyed life as much as the next person did. He really enjoyed being a father to our son and daughter, and really enjoyed being a grandfather to our grandson. He will be missed so much but he’ll always be in our hearts and thoughts forever. He also loved being a U.S. Marine and always said once a Marine, always a Marine. We will miss you forever and love you forever. No one could or ever will take your place.
