  2. My heart aches for the loss of Uncle Rance. He always lit up the room with his laugh, his wisdom and joyous energy. Uncle Rances’ presence at all our family holidays/birthdays/gatherings is a vivid wonderful memory for me. From fishing with him at the 80 when I was a kid, to shooting guns at the Maudlins just a few years ago. Our family was better with him a part of it. He will be greatly missed. My thoughts are with Aunt Terry, Andy and the rest of the family in this time. Love -Tom

  3. I wouldn’t be the woman I am today without having Rance as my grandfather. My love for him is endless, and I know his love for me was the same. There’s not many words I have now, but for my family and my grandfather’s friends, I know he loved us all. My heart hurts for you as much as it hurts for me, especially my grandmother Terry and my father Andy.

  14. Terry,

    Fran and I are very sorry to hear of Rances passing. I have thought of Rance and you over the years and wish we had stayed in touch. Rance and I had many great times together in high school that I will never forget, especially his old ’53 chevy with no second gear. RIP Rance.

  16. Thank you to all who have left condolences. I can honestly say that this was good for my soul. Seeing comments from friends and family I haven’t heard from or seen in 20 or 30 years warms my heart thinking of all the good times we had, and the fact you still care.

    For those of you whom I never met but knew dad, thank you too. It’s easy for me to forget that my dad had a life before I was around and after I left the house (Dad’s 53 Chevy sounds a lot like the 78 Blazer I had). I’m happy to know he had a full and wonderful life.

  17. To Terry and family, and to Morris, Mary Jo and Jerry,

    I was so very sorry to hear of Rance’s passing. We were next door neighbors on Conlin Avenue. So many wonderful memories of our growing up years flooded my mind after reading his obituary. He was a wonderful friend even though we hadn’t seen each other in years.

    God’s Blessings to all of you. I am positive Rance left you with many special memories to cherish.
