Me and junior had a lot of fun running around and I will always remember the times we thought we was sneaking into creal by turning the headlights off so owl wouldn't catch us but he told Junior the next day that he seen us sneaking into town.

We we're proud to have been able to call Junior more than a neighbor. He was a wonderful man and he was one we could count on to help watch our place if we were going away for a few days. He will be missed. No words can express our sympathy for Braydon and Sean and Hunter. Just know he loved you.
