There are no words for the loss of another great one. He was such a kind man. I was surprised, more than once, about his level of patience. All those countless sleepovers with us noisy girls, making up dances and cheers or playing tag in the dark. A million giggles, loud I’m sure, and never once was he annoyed or showed it at least. He was always smiling. He had such dedication to supporting us while the sun beat down at all those hot summer track meets. Another great one gone physically but will always remain as a memory and a part of some of the happiest times in my life.

Mutt was a devoted family man, a devoted friend, and just an all around good man. He is reunited with his precious wife Karen. And now can take care of her once more. We will miss you but know you are happy again! Love you always.
