Star in recognition of his sacrifice in the Vietnam war.

someone during his service as a security guard for the president
of the church.
His children knew him as a father who was constant and
loyal. He always worked hard. Of his virtues, people knew
him to be peaceful and kind, and his language as far from
complaining as could be. He treated all people well, and
he was always interested in making friends with people everywhere.
He lived a life of accomplishment. He is survived by his
wife Elizabeth, father; John, brother; Jim, and his four
children; Jason, Andrew, Cassi, and Cami.
