He showed all the husband to his wife, Alice, and fatherly love to his three children.

May God give him the rest to Edwin and strength to his family who have experienced all the love and respect when he was around. God bless his family.

  32. Thinking of you today. Days may pass, years may roll by. BUT you are never forgotten.
    Missed dearly by your family in the Mid – West.
