Story from the Quilt:
Symbols represent the very special love relationship of Tad and his wife; devotion to God and appreciation for all God had done in his life; passion for playing drums; and great love of nature/fishing/hunting. Favorite clothes: camo pants, T-shirts, bandana.
Very neat, organized person: meticulous! Tenacious! Never did anything “halfway.” If not to his satisfaction, he would continue until he was satisfied with what he was doing.
Tad had a gift of creating laughter and doing the funniest things- “big kid” at heart. He was also a very serious, compassionate and sensitive person.
Honorably discharged; Lance Corporal; USMC.
