They enjoyed their time together reading scriptures of the Bible together. A much loved father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. A 1962 graduate of Windber High School, a proud American Navy veteran and aerospace engineer in San Diego, Calif., where he lived many years. He was so overjoyed to be back home and to just sit on the porch and to chit-chat and wave to all who came by. Not only was he the rock of the family, but a hero to many.
