Today the world lost a very special, and beautiful person. My loving wife, Barbara passed away peacefully this morning in our home.
Words cannot start to describe what she meant to me, and to so many others. Barb was the most caring, generous, loving person that I have ever known. She took such pride in everything she did, with family, friends, home and work. Barb marveled and appreciated beauty in all that she experienced; a sunset at the ocean, a beautiful flower, a hike along a mountain trail, or a special animal. Barb loved to laugh and enjoyed time with friends and family. Please keep her always alive in your heart, your thoughts, and in your prayers and memories.

Family and friends are welcomed to attend funeral services for my beloved Barbara.
