He was an Honorable United States Army Vietnam War Veteran who showed courage and strength while battling 2.5 years of cancer. He was retired from Union Carbide/Praxair Gases after 25 years of service. He enjoyed life with his family and friends and never took anything for granted. A beautiful life that came to an end, he died as he lived, everyone's friend. In our hearts, a memory will always be kept of one we loved, and will never forget. A Memorial Mass will be held on Thursday, April 24, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. at Saint Justin's Parish, 2655 Homestead Road, Santa Clara, CA 95051. Immediately following the Mass there will be a closing ceremony held at Santa Clara Veterans Memorial Park, 909 Kiely Blvd., Santa Clara, CA 95051.
