Memories Timeline


  1. Dear Aunt Fran, Barbara, Patty and families, You have our deepest sympathies. We will never forget PapPap and the love of his family. He was a loving, kind gentle person who was always willing to help others. Keep the happy memories close and know that he will be with Nunnie again. God be with you at this time and always. You have some very special “guardian angels” watching over you. Love, Melanie and Gerry

  2. Frannie, Barbara & Patty and all family members, So sorry to hear of Uncle Joe’s passing. 96 years is a long time and you have all been blessed. We should all be so lucky. Our thoughts are with you and our hearts go out to you. Love, Toni Marie and Michael

  3. To my “other” family … my deepest sympathy on the passing of Pap-pap. Although I know that it doesn’t take away the sadness you feel right now, he lived a good and full life! It is with “sure and certain hope” that we trust he is back with Nunnie now. When we were teens, I always was worried that he was going to yell at us, and he never did. He was such a kind soul. I wish I could be with you tomorrow, but, I can’t get back to Weirton. My thoughts will be with you. Until the next time, Love, Missy

  4. Pap-pap was such an inspiration. He was riding his stationary bike, woodworking, staying up to date on politics and doing his crosswords until very late in life. I’m thankful to have known him. Sending all of his family and friends sincere condolences. Jennifer

  5. Dear Patty, Rich and Family, Please accept our sympathy in the loss of your sweet Dad~~~~I only knew him from the bank, but he impressed me as a very kind soul. I’m sure he’ll be deeply missed by all of you. God Bless, with love and friendship, Mike and Janice

  6. Mom, Aunt Fran, Aunt Barb and all of our family. Sorry I could not be there to support and share with everyone my sympathies and memories of our Pap. I always enjoyed looking out of our window on Denese Dr. down to thier porch and seeing Pap and Nun sitting in the shade on thier porch. So lucky to live next to my Grandparents! I will always cherish the memories of Christmas Day gatherings with all my cousins and Aunt and Uncles, searching for our boots on the tree and playing football with the big cousins out back, and eating too many cookies! No longer having them as the center of our family is a large loss to our family. Let’s all focus on the good times and rich memories of Pap and Nunnie and honor thier lives by remembering how great it was to be brought up as a big happy family at the lake, or thier house! Miss everyone Rick W.

  7. Dear Fran, Barb, Patty and families. I learned of PapPap’s passing from Joey. I was very saddened by the news. PapPap was the most kindest, gentlest, hard working man with a heart of pure gold. He an Nunny were the grandparents to everyone of us growing up in the neighborhood. There are so many, many fond memories. Their lives touched so many. May PapPap and Nunny rest in peace and may the Perpetual Light shine upon them. They both have earned their place in Heaven. God bless you all.

  8. My deepest condolences to the family. Joseph and Emma have a special place in my heart – many many great childhood memories were spent at their home. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
