    This breaks my heart, Van was a special cousin that I always admired! His stories of his adventures in Alaska and his smile as he told them will be forever missed. He was a gifted story teller. Love and blessings to you Julia. We will be remembering you in our prayers that Gods loving arms are holding you tight!

    I’m so glad I had the pleasure of meeting him and his wonderful wife and helping him through last years health issues and will cherish the pictures I have of us fishing and the therapy sessions in the garage which is bigger than my house:) he was a fighter and will me missed by those from Paradise home care that met him. Thoughts and prayers to Mrs Julia and family.

    I knew Van as a kid with his family & crazy cousin Wayne. As adults (? lol), my husband, Wayne, Vannie & one of his friends spent many weekend nights playing card & socializing. He’s now with all those men enjoying Heaven & having no pain. We’ll miss you Vannie & my prayers go out to Julia. May God wrap his loving arms around you. ❤️

    Van was Wayne‘s favorite cousin and shooting buddy. He was a fine man and a good friend. He will be missed. May God bless and care for his lovely and devoted wife, Julia.

    Van and I were friends when we were kids. Our parents were good friends. The mothers visited (gossiped) while the dads, Van and I went hunting. I always enjoyed “Vannie’s” friendship and his love of the outdoors. I was excited for him when he sold his beautiful Corvette, bought a Scout and headed to the woods of Alaska. Though we lost touch over the years, I will always remember him fondly with a smile.
