    To the family of Junior: My thoughts and prayers are with you doing this very difficult time. I have many memories of Junior while I was working in the PT dept at United Helpers. Junior had a great sense of humor and always made us laugh. I remember getting him a pepsi hat from my father in law and I made his day, he was able to wear that to Oscars and make his buddies jealous. Junior was a great man and we will all miss him very much. He left us all too soon. May your days be filled with happy memories of Junior and know that he is watching over you all.

    To say Junior will be missed is an understatment. He was a bright spot in so many lives and touched everyone who knew him. He was so kind, gentle, generous, and ALWAYS willing to help anyone. He was the kind of person we aspire to be. You are all in our thoughts and prayers, God bless and keep each and everyone of you. With deep sorrow, Deb and Joe Montgomery

    I didn’t know Jr. for long.. but I will def. be missing him at work, he could make anyone laugh no matter how bad of a mood you were in. He was just a great guy all around. It’s true…”only the good die young” He will be missed by everyone greatly.
