After 20 long years of battling with diabetes our beloved Papa passed away on January 22, 2020. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and he will be greatly missed. Anybody who was lucky enough to know Papa understands what he meant to his family and friends. In lieu of sending flowers, anyone wanting to can donate to the American Diabetes Association Research Foundation in Papa’s memory. Hopefully, one day we can find a cure to this awful disease and prevent more families from losing their own Papa.
