  • Our deepest condolences to all the family! You could usually find him scouring the grounds in the morning after a busy carnival night looking for loose change. Our memories of “grampa” were him riding around in his golf cart around the carnival lot policing the staff and making sure everyone was working. He liked to stir things up. He was cantankerous at times but usually had a smile for all. Jim & Marian Feakes - Posted by: Jim Feakes (Friends ) on: Mar 23, 2019

  • My dad worked with his old partner Red for several years and always had plenty of stories to tell of some of the hilarious things he did. He was a one-of-the-kind character who will be missed. Phil Mowatt (England) - Posted by: phil mowatt (son of old family friend) on: Mar 23, 2019
