Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Hi Everyone!

Pops left us for his new heavenly home on 1/22/23 as a very well-loved, well-traveled, successful, kind, funny, and hard-headed almost 84-year-old. Pops was married to the love of his life for 62 years and was blessed with countless friends and family, 2 daughters, 7 grandchildren, and 3 great-grandchildren with one on the way who he even got to feel kick and say hello! Pops fought a long and courageous fight against stage 4 cancer for just over 7 years. In January 2016, no one was sure if Pops would see another birthday or Christmas; well, he enjoyed 7 more birthdays and Christmases with family and friends, including his big 80th! We are in awe of Pops' strength and attitude through it all, and he is truly our hero. His famous saying was, "just another B.D.I.P. (beautiful day in paradise)!" 

We will be walking on April 29 in Pops' honor.
