He was a quiet man, but was never quiet about showing his love for us. He was kind, had a sweet sense of humor and was the utmost gentleman. Everybody who knew my Dad LOVED him. He truly had a heart of gold,” she captioned the post.

“Daddy, I am heartbroken you are gone. However, I know you are at peace now and that brings me comfort. I promise you I will watch over Mom and take care of her as you did for over 60 years. Thank you for being such a dedicated husband and showing me what a true gentleman is. Thank you for being a wonderful Dad and Gramps and being there for us. But most of all, thank you for loving me like you always did. No matter what, you had my back and were my biggest fan. I loved making you proud.”
