The world lost a literal rockstar that day and my heart has been shattered forever. He was the most selfless soul and he was completely unique from anyone. My daddy had long hair and living in small town, people never knew what to think of him at first. He was different and wore band tees but the band tees that man wore came from an actual show in the 90’s and he could tell you every detail about it. People always ended up being surprised by him in a good way. He was an intriguing man and always had something to say but, at the same time, always knew how to listen. He was a good simple honest man. And, he was truly my best friend.
There will be a celebration of life on Friday June 17 at Green Acres Park from 6-8 pm. With a gravesite service to be held at a later date at Rolla City Cemetery.
The family asks for donations to the American Lung Association or the American Cancer Society.
