The following Hometown Hero was submitted by Patti Jones:
This is my Dad, he served in the Navy. He passed away in April. My life is not the same with out him, I don't want to live with out my Dad. He was a kind man, who loved to hug all the women, and he made earrings for little girls. He would look to see if they had earrings on and if they did, he would call them Sam or George! Then he'd ask their mom if it was ok to give them the earrings. It made his day to see the smiles on the little faces!
