    He was a man with a heart of gold and was loved by so many, for his wisdom, character and his wonderful sense of humor. I can’t count the times that he has been there for me, to give me strength and would tell me to leave it to God, He’ll take care of everything.
    I remember the last time that my husband and I visited with him, at his home in Gallatin…. He would show us his wonderful gun collection and always had something delicious, cooked up (cookies, candies). He could cook better than most women.
    JR, you will be sincerely missed, my dear friend. We will love you always and remember the good times & laughs that you gave us..
    If I don’t get to come to the memorial service (due to moving), I will keep the family in my prayers and you all, will be in my thoughts.. Thanks for the MEMORIES … from your little neighbor girl!

      He loved his family, so much. Ready to always welcome his friends in his home or on the phone, not a shy bone in his body. Will be missed by so many.

    I met J.R. a couple of years ago and we instantly found lots to share. He was the protector of many and had a large shoulder to cry on. Always had a large smile when he was talking about his family or Shatzie. I am going to miss the many hours that we would just talk, share, laugh or cry. Fly high J.R. , I’ll meet you on the other side.Thank you for your time, thoughts, caring words and great hugs.
