I am so sorry for your loss. I knew him as Daris. He worked on dad's house and mine. He came once saying he didn't think I would get flood water but when he came back he said, "I guess you did." He was a great person.

A trusted friend for almost 50 years. One of the best friends I have ever had. We had a lot of great times together. I will miss going to the farm and jumping into projects together. I will always remember all the wonderful trips we had together. My condolences to Pat and Michael and all the family. You have all been like my second family.
