He was a loving and tender gardener. One can describe him as being in-tune with the earth. Everything he grew, he grew intuitively with love and care. He also enjoyed baking and canning and sharing the fruits of his labor with other people. He was a lover of music, baking and eating at Chef’s Diner in Montour Falls almost every day.
He was predeceased by his wife Dorothy. Survivors include five daughters, Amey (Daniel) Clark, Evelyn (Tim) Jenkins, Margaret Atkinson, Dorothy (Ron) Czajkowski, and Anita Davis Jolly; and numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great grandchildren.
