First Responder and was a member of the Keweenaw County 911
Readdressing Committee. The dedication took place at the Grant Township

A CARING MAN IS GONE NOW,
AND THIS WORLD SEEMS
A LITTLE LESSENED SOMEHOW
BECAUSE HE IS NOT PART OF IT
A LITTLE LESS WISE AND GREAT,
A LITTLE LESS GOOD AND BRAVE,
MAY IT HELP TO KNOW THAT HE
WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN
BY THOSE WHOSE LIVES HE TOUCHED.
AND MAY OUR CHERISHED MEMORIES
BRING HIS FAMILY AND FRIENDS COMFORT.
