Condolence from Angela and Scott on November 16th, 2015 8:43 am

Devin and Nick,

I only had the privilege of knowing your family over the past 8 – 10 years but I’ve probably heard more stories that you can imagine from Scott. He loved and respected your father and whenever we went to an “event” such as washer toss, one of the first things Scott would say is “I hope Bones is there”! If we were at the camp and he disappeared, I knew Bones was across the road. I will miss seeing him on his scooter in unexpected places…. he didn’t let anything stop him and he will be greatly missed.

Condolence from Mike and Louann on November 16th, 2015 12:40 pm
