Jon Durbin - Nov 13, 2009

I am extremely heartbroken with the passing of my Papaw! I was just home to visit him in September, because I knew he was not doing well…and it was so important to me, to see and spend time with him.
I wish more than anything in this world that it was possible for me to be there to mourn the death of one of the GREATEST men I have ever had the privilege and honor to know and to love!
I truly treasure every memory that I have of my grandfather……..he was such an Amazing man!
I want to Thank Everyone that has been able to be there for my family during this VERY difficult time.
Willard, Ohio is my home town….and Willard, Ohio will NEVER be the same with the passing of one of the main Patriarch’s that made Willard, Home.
