He had a kind and loving heart. When his cousin, Sandy Foster needed a kidney transplant he graciously gave her one of his. This kind and humble act of kindness extended her life for several years. We were blessed to have known and shared our lives with such a kind and loving person. He never met a stranger, which is something he took after his dad. He loved to tell stories, cracking jokes, making people laugh and smile. He was a hard worker and helped out anyone whenever he could.
