94 years old and an example for us all.  Too bad to lose someone like this but great that his story is remembered and told.

Thanks for posting.

As I was reading that story, I couldn't help thinking about jack's teenaged son helping his parents every weekend; carry in tools and materials for 6 miles. I gotta give that kid some credit.
