to Horace's family. I was the volunteer director at Crouse Hospital and, I believe, Horace was a volunteer the entire 10 years I held that position. I remember him as a very loyal, dedicated and trusted volunteer....Tho I have forgotten since, I used to know what day of the week it was based on whose smiling faces I saw each day I entered the hospital, and Horace was one who reminded me because he was always there on his appointed day. I appreciated his quiet, steadfast demeanor and have such fond memories of those years, and of Horace.

I started mowing your lawn as a teenager (using your push mower that was probably older than my Dad) and you'd always take me out to eat afterwords. Your eyesight has never been great, but that didn't stop you from somehow pointing out every single strand of off-color weed in that huge peony bush for me to dive waist-deep into to find and cut. In the winters we'd skip the lawn (despite you always asking if I wanted to mow it even when it was covered in several feet of snow) and go right for the food.

You and I could seriously put away some clams, too. We'd go through 50 between us (after our soup appetizer, of course) and when the waitress would bring the check, you'd always ask if we should get another order.

For more than half my life we've been doing our weekly dinners and looking back on it I'm so glad you needed help with the yard work because we were able to get closer than we'd even been.

Dad, From all of us that loved and cared for for you.....we will miss you. My memories are of the fun and laughter we always shared. You have given me a direction in life and have been a great inspiration. Very proud to have been your son. The tears I see from others of your passing show the love each and every one had for you. You have inspired, helped and influenced so many through your life. The last many years have been difficult but we always worked to find the good things about every challenge. Your humor still lives on and always will. I couldn’t have given you the care you needed and fulfill your wishes without all of the wonderful loving family and friends that stepped up and were always there for you. When I hear one special little boy say “Great Grampa Horace” it triggers a very warm special feeling in my heart every time. I’m going to miss you very much dad and thank you for being such a wonderful person........ as our saying carries on. ... “Taking a nap”.......Dad Rest In Peace
