Dad, it's hard to believe you are not here with us anymore; you have always been there for us. You taught us that family comes first, hard work pays the bills and respect for others wins over lots of friends. If everyone could have had the two parents we had growing up the world would be a better place. He taught us all of us what it means to be a great, caring and supportive loving parent. He loved his grandchildren and great-grandchildren so much and also spending time with his family every week at Sunday dinner. We love you and miss you so much. Always loved and never forgotten'¦..your family. Friends may call Tuesday, July 5th, 2-4 & 7-9 P.M. at Vay-Schleich & Meeson Funeral Home, Greece Chapel, 1075 Long Pond Road.
