Dad was a very giving, and caring man. He never met a stranger, and would talk to anyone he met. He was married to Helen (Blankenship). Together they raised eight children. Dad was a hard working man, and very proud. Although his life was not blessed with monetary wealth, he had much more.. his wealth lied within a loving family. He lost mom eleven months before his death, and once again, they are reunited in Heaven. We love you Mom and Dad.
