Submitted by his Daughter

As a young girl‚ you gave me the confidence to cope with new learning skills. At age three you found joy when I disassembled the dining room table‚ chairs‚ door knobs and appliances. You showed me compassion with stray animals we took in and cared for.

Later as a growing teen‚ you spent time with my math struggles yet helped me seek out my lost hamster Mr. Carter‚ with a pocket full of Cheerios. As strong and stoic as you were‚ your soul laid bare when you shed tears for your beloved Beagle Snoopy‚ after he was killed by a car.

Today as an adult with children of my own‚ I have patience and love to share with my three children‚ four step-children‚ two nieces‚ a nephew‚ a grandchild‚ two dogs and seven cats. Though our distance grew with time you will always be a part of us all.

Remembering‚
Kimberly

    Missing you

    – Kimberly Walker-Moyer
  2. Wishing you were here to meet your great Grandson that is named Arthur after you. Although you would have not liked his first name Chevy I know you were a Ford man.

    – Kimberly Walker-Moyer
  3. You have 9 Great Grandchildren. 2 of them want to follow in your footsteps. We all talk about you often and share stories with them. The girls took the girls to your station and the guys told them all about you. They even took them on a ride in the truck.
