He was a kind & gentle man & my neighbor for many years. I will never forget how nervous he was driving me to Harrisburg Hospital from Carlisle because I didn't trust the hospital after my grandfather had died earlier in the year. He kept saying u sure you don't want to go back! He was so friendly,giving, and helpful. He will always hold a special place in my heart. My condolences to the family for your loss he will truly be missed.
