His heart belonged to his Soulmate, Frances Pandolfo Little, who he bravely lived without for nine years and six days before reuniting. He was stubborn, brilliant, worldly, and would gladly give you the Hawaiian shirt off his back. He lived a blessed, long, and full life filled with adventure and love. Because he would hate for us to make a fuss, we are keeping his celebration of life to immediate family, but he would love for you to make donations in his name to the Buckeye Bulldog Club or the Bulldog Club of America. Because dad so loved math, we’ll make you calculate his age (hint-OLD).
