  1. Chops was my friend, and brother in Christ. He had a great laugh and his voice was distinct. He was always willing to help others and he kept his head up no matter how things in life were going. He would give you one of his big smiles. He attended The LightHouse Church of the Nazarene in Escanaba. He would bring his little pup Chewy to church with him as they sat and listened to the word. Of course he would let me love on Chewy and when I was done and giving him back, Chops would say ” Oh sureee now that you’ve got him all wound up.” We laughed and went about our way. He acted tough sometimes.. but he wasn’t so tough, his heart was huge and he helped others out even when he wasn’t in a much better way.
    He rest now in the light and love or our Savior Jesus Christ and lives in eternal good and happiness.
    Rest well my brother, my friend Chops, When the times comes, I’ll see you again in the golden light.

  2. We will miss CHOPS and Chewy. He was a man who followed his dreams! He had a never ending love for his son, and his greatest desire was to leave him a legacy. He had great respect and love for his mother and appreciated all she did for him. Having met him years ago in Ann Arbor and then getting to know him better when he moved to the UP, I saw his heart warm and change. Having gone through many tough times, I saw forgiveness overtake him and his love for God grow. My one regret is that the Stay Home Stay Safe campaign put his driver’s license on hold, because he was headed for greatness!

  3. I’ve missed you over the years buddy and think of you often. Well I guess now we’ll see each other in the future. Bless you my old friend.
