R.I.P Grampa, you'll surely be missed by all that knew you. You were such an amazing man through & through. I'll never forget all the ice fishing trips with you, the walks through the woods, brook fishing, & the rides down the airline road. I remember spending the weekends with you and Grammie Gray, Some of the best memories of my childhood was spent at your house watching the deer 🦌 in the field behind your house & listening to your stories from the past, how I loved them. I love you forever & alway's grampa. Until we meet again.

I'm going to miss him loved when he came in the shop and would tell all his hunting stories and working on his truck. Nicest guy you'd ever meet. He will be greatly missed around here.

Junior was a very special man. The best story teller ever. My thoughts are with all of his family at this time and my deepest sympathy.

So sorry for your loss. I remember the great times at camp with the snapping turtles, which I disliked. Great times. Uncle JR was a sweet man and will be missed with all his stories.

Wished I got to see uncle Junior when I was up in Maine. Always will remember him at his Camp and when he was building his garage. Also when we would go hunting. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family in this difficult time. R.I.P Uncle
