He had his own idea of life’s daily simple pleasures. A coffee, regular. Word games. Murder mystery shows. And reading the obituaries. “If you’re reading this, you’re doing better than me”, he would say now if he could.
He is survived by his 5 grandchildren, 3 children including daughters Krista Kelly & Stacey Saletel, and his wife of 52 years, Patricia.
