To know “Grampy” was to love him. There was never mistaking the sound of his beautiful tenor voice. Nothing pleased him more than singing in church or singing with his family. Some of his most special moments were working on his train set with Austin, riding his John Deere tractor or camping with his family. He loved to watch UCONN basketball or a Red Sox game. He never missed an opportunity to cheer his grandkids on from a sideline, play a game with them or most importantly, give them hugs and tell them he loved them.
