He had a great sense of humor, loved playing practical jokes & telling stories from his exciting past. Our Dad was loved by many. Services will be private but there will be a celebration of dad's life with a memorial service in the future per dad's wishes. In lieu of flowers, we ask that you play a harmless practical joke on a friend or loved one and make someone laugh in his honor. He would love that more than anything! And in his words, it's never "goodbye", it's always "later".
