I was reading the news and saw that they're naming part of Hwy 129 after you. I had to come look you up and see how you came to the end of your watch. What an amazing man you must have been to have garnered the honor of getting your name on a street sign...that doesn't happen for just anybody! The article says your wife and children were present at the dedication ceremony for your piece of the roadway. What a testament to how much they love you! It's been a long time since you left this world, but you have not been forgotten!
