Ike was very special to us. Our kids grew up knowing his as “Papa” and he made Danielle’s mother very happy in their years together. We were blessed to have been a part of his life. He is missed beyond our ability to convey in words. Our hearts go out to the rest of his family.

I love and miss him so much! I’ve got a lot of fond memories but the best we’re going fishing with him as a kid at long branch lake in Macon, MO….we would always stop at Hardee’s on our way for breakfast…..he even taught me how to clean them. I will cherish our last visit forever when he told me how proud he was of me and when he hugged me good-bye and said he never wanted to let me go….I never did….your in my heart forever daddy.
