Dan, I am sorry for your loss I just found out today 9-16- 2019 that he was sick and had passed away. I know he was a good man and the Lord will take care of him. One thing for sure I will never forget him he is one of the best painters and builders I have ever seen. He made My 36 Chevy the most beautiful coupe I have ever seen. I will surely miss him. I’m sorry I missed his funeral.
