Our dad was a very outgoing and social man. He turned his garage into his mancave with a sliding screen so that he would be connected to whoever was in the neighborhood. He always had an open door policy for anyone that wanted to stop in and discuss Harold's hooch making recipe or to just check in. He loved the company and always tried to lookout for all his neighbors. We would like to thank the neighborhood for having such great compassion and concern for our dad.
