Lifetime friend Scott Whitehead who was loyal in life and during passing. Numerous nieces and nephews.

A private Celebration of Life will take place at later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a charity of your choice.
God saw you getting tired, and a cure was not to be.
So he put his arms around you and whispered , “Come along with Me”.
With tearful eyes we watched you suffer, and saw you fade away.
Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay.
A loving heart stopped beating, Hardworking hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us.
He only takes the best!
