Sarah Larson says
My dad was an amazing kind man who had enough love to share with everyone. He will be greatly missed by all. Thank you to everyone who has reached out to the family during this hard time. We appreciate your well wishes. Thank you so much.
Angie Flowers says
Dad was the biggest kid I know! There was never a dull moment with him, one of his best qualities. He was that guy in the toy aisle that turned on EVERY SINGLE TOY, then walked away snickering, or blaming a kid in that aisle.
He loved fishing and camping, either with Mom or any one of the grandkids. And they all thought their Papa was the BEST!
I will miss him terribly, but he is exactly where he wanted to be. With the love of his life, Mom.
May you forever be with her, laughing, teasing and making each other happy.
Love you Dad

Sarah has told me stories about her Dad…..wish I could have met him!
“Rocky” – the fight is over, now you can be at peace.
Leah Hamilton says
Pa (as I have always known him) was always a joy to be around. You never knew what he was going to say or do but you knew it was going to make you laugh. The world lost a ray of sunshine. My condolences to all his family and may you find peace knowing Cheri and Ken are together again smiling and looking over you and all those they cared about.
