He was an "ornery little cuss" to us but well liked in the community. My grandmother was an angel to her 6 grandchildren. She did a lot of secretary work for my grandfather and also worked at the Public Utilities Department for over 25 years. She loved her gardens of flowers and berries and loved taking care of the little animals." [6]
