    To my good buddy (‘Body’) who could always put a positive spin to every negative thought I had – I’ll miss you so much.

    In Michigan now but will be in touch with the family when I get back. ❤️❤️

    I worked with Van when I was a teenager and he was in his 20s. I was looking for another obituary when I saw this notice and felt I should comment. Van took me hunting the only time I ever went until I got my own shotgun when i was in the military. He taught me everything I learned in the Genesco printing department. I saw him one more time in about 1972 at Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency and he was as friendly as ever. Van was a good man, and Heaven is a better place for his being there.
