I’m so sorry to hear of your loss. He touched so many people in the village of Harrisville, Lake Bonaparte, and the surrounding area. I saw him in the hardware store almost daily. He was always doing some type of job for someone but he especially enjoyed electrical work. He is missed by all of us who knew him.
