Kypie and I traveled and worked in 9 different states when the telephone companies were changing from mechanical to digital switches...…….Later we both were at Cargill working for Meisner Electric Inc. He was hard working, determined, and a little stubborn never to give up 'till the job was done......I'm sure some of these traits have been passed to his kids and grandkids.....God's Blessings to the family...….Ron & Jan Hamlin
