He was thoroughly conscientious in all that he did, a noble husband, a devoted father and an unselfish neighbor. His religion was a matter of deep and abiding faith which shaped his life and guided his conduct. He lived continually with the full confidence of eternal life just beyond.

It can be truly said that he and his wife had as their greatest ambition that their children should be men and women of genuine Christian character. This is a great heritage left to the children who remain.
