Went to Jesus home on Apr. 25, 1976. 10 mos. after graduation, 2 weeks before 19th birthday, on same date as his First Communion when Jesus came to Kim's home. Was an apprentice butcher at Austin's mkt. Had made last payment on his "special" car just the week before. Was living on the farm he was raised on with his one younger Brother, Mark, and one older sister, Gail,(who was Germany in the Army at the time) and a younger sister Jill. His dog "Brandy" who he had from childhood passed away 2 weeks before. He loved all his friends who made a parking lot of an unused field & the hay mow was their "rec center" every weekend. (Music too loud for mom in the house.) He never had his name on a building, painting, book, etc. but he will always be 'SPECIAL' to his family.
