Sierra Nevada Golf Course & Silver State Golf Course, for His days fishing along the Carson River, and mostly ... for being a dad, and a “Pop Pop” - to his family. We will be touched in memory by the vast assortment of .. ship stories, Polish food stories, summers on Uncle Henry’s farm stories, race track & chili cook off stories, Bijou and Genoa Golfing moments, along with uneventful, but most memorable Sunday Dinners, Holidays, and BBQ’s together.

We are thankful that you are finally at peace. We will miss YOU, though, Dad, Pop Pop, James, Jim !
