He was a hard worker. He worked for Gatke Corporation for many years and later for Flexaust. He was a member of the Moose Lodge in Warsaw and the Fraternal Order of Eagles in Alexandria. He enjoyed dancing and playing cards. He was well known for his good sense of humor and was very social. He rarely knew a stranger and was incredibly proud of his grandchildren whom he loved dearly.
Those who survive with memories to cherish include his wife: Susan Creamer; daughters: Selina Maish (Richard Still) of Warsaw; Michelle (Jerry) Goble of Warsaw; and Angela House of Milton, Dela.; and two stepchildren, Missy Rupe of Warsaw; and Jeff (Kelly) Rupe of Chesterton.
