  • CD will be missed more than you know. We shared many stories together and we will miss those stories and visits that he shared with us. Your friend and neighbor, Sonny & Janet

  • Thank you to everyone for the kind words and condolences. Grandpa was truly one in a million and he will be sorely missed. I keep thinking of Christmas day when he was playing with one of Mikey’s toys figuring it out like he did with other things. He taught me alot of things that I will always keep close and will pass on to my kids. From every back yard moment to going to the farmers market with you looking at people’s junk I enjoyed the time I had with you and I don’t regret a single thing. I love you Grandpa give everyone hugs and kisses for us.

  • CD and I were the last standing hunters from the very early group that hunted Bombay Hook. We spent many pleasant hours rehashing memories of hunts, guys we hunted with and stories about the hunts. one day last year he and I just spent the early morning hours rehashing stories with Oscar and never did go out to our stands until the afternoon. We go back to the 60’s hunting at the Hook before there were even stands. CD was a real class act and a real gentleman. I was truly heart broken when I heard of his passing. I will miss him and pray for him. MIKE
