He was a husband and father to 4 children.
Grandpa to 7.
He owned his own business called Fortner Radio and TV. He was a very active guy and always on the go. He also has a lot of stress from work and his blood pressure was very high.
When he was pretty young he suffered a very bad stroke. He had to learn how to walk and talk all over again. His new diet did not include salt and he had trouble with the food tasting bland and flavorless. We watched as he unhappily complied with this diet. Every meal was monotonous.
