Your son, Justine Perez


To my Pops, I can’t thank you enough for all the unconditional love, the many laughs, & all the memories.Until I see you again big guy, 

Your son, Dayne Bjerke


My Dad was a fighter and lover, and would give the shirt off his back for anyone. He made a huge impact on a lot of people in his life. My Dad lived life how he wanted no matter what and was a free spirit. He loved the sun, outdoors, and beach.   Dad you are the best man I have ever known.

Love, your Daughter, Cayla Bjerke


When I was younger you would always leave work and come home and stay with me until I fell asleep. If I had nightmares you would kiss my eyes and they would go away.

Love, your Daughter, Jenna Bjerke
