I'm so very sorry for the loss of a great loving, wonderful, and caring man. He would stop what he was doing to help in a moment's notice. I have lots of great memories of him because he was my father in law for over 27 years. My dad Jack Joiner was in the Air Force with him for the last 10 years until they both retired in 1977. They were in the same squadron ( Nightwatch). I'll always hold those memories close to my heart. Until we see each other again. I know you're at peace and in pain no more.
