Memories of his youngest daughter:
"In a few days it will be the 100th anniversary of Dad's birth. I was only 11 when Dad passed away. He was a good man and wonderful father." (10 Feb 1966)[7]
"I wish my Dad had lived longer. He was such a good man. Everyone liked and respected him. I am glad I spent so much time with him. After he got hurt mother sent me with him all the time if I was not in school. She knew he might go any time since he had had heart trouble after the accident. I did not know but I am so grateful for the companionship." (date unknown)[7]
