Praying for You all in your loss of an obviously amazing and godly man. I’m celebrating his life that I’m sure God has used in the lives of so many, and praying for God’s peace and comfort for all of you. Sending you much love, in Christ.

Jeanette, Kevin and Spencer-we are so sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. It is so hard to say goodbye to a parent.
Rest In Peace in the arms of the Lord. Blessing to Marge and family.
Jeanette, I am so sorry for the loss of your father. Sounds like he was a wonderful man. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this sad time.
What a lifetime of memories flash before my eyes. I don't ever remember a time that Papa Van wasn't in my life. I'll always be grateful for the friendship he and my Dad shared for 50 years which started with their time serving in the Navy in Naples, Italy. I'll always remember Van's smile, duck talk, and sense of humor and I cherish all of the 4th of July's our families shared together while growing up on Long Lake. I will forever remember you and will wait to see you again on the distant shore of heaven. Love & prayers.
Marge & family. We are so sorry to hear of Richard's passing. He was one of those memorable Neapolitan Navy buddies and I always enjoyed visiting with him on the phone. It seems the years are catching up with all of us! Frank & Madeline Witt
