Fuzz, Papa never met a stranger. He was kind to everyone he met. He loved to fish & hunt. He adored his Grandkids & Great Grandkids. Loved all babies. He had a heart of Gold. Family meant the world to him. We're really going to miss him. His smile, his laugh, his advice, just his presence. Most all of us know how we could carry on a conversation with him, using only our eyes & facial expressions! Talent!!!
He & his brothers even made up a "secret language" to communicate without anyone else knowing what, or who, they were talking about.
He is survived by his wife Ann, his daughters, Lesa Linton(Roger), Tammy Bullock(Bud), Becky Martin(Mark). Six Granddaughters - Casey Rogers, Lindsay Mitchell, Jena Rivera, Jessica Martin, Allison Smith & Shelby Bullock.
