    Steve and Darin; I was saddened to read your dads name in the paper this morning. Back in the day I would see your dad at the grain elevator,McConnell machinery, or just talk to him on the C.B. radio. (hay rake, if I remember correctly). I just loved talking to him, and loved his laugh and jolly attitude he had for life. he was a good man and will be missed. Prayers to you and your familys.

    To family,

    Please accept my sincere condolences, God’s Word, the Bible, provides the greatest comfort of all. The Christian apostle Paul stated: “I have hope toward God . . . that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” (Acts 24:15) Thinking about the Bible-based hope of a resurrection can be the greatest comfort while grieving the loss of a loved one. We should never forget that Jehovah is near to those that are broken at heart.”—Psalm 34:18.

    Dear Steve, Darin & Families,Please know that my heart is sad today for the loss of your Dad and my favorite Uncle. He was the best. From putting us girls in the hay field, picking up bales of hay to teasing me by calling me Little Liza Jane. So glad that he had lunch with Dad (LaVern) on thursday.
    Our Prayers will be with you always. Love Cindy & Matt
