To the man I referred to as my Grandpa #2 after my grandfather (Wilmer Hurst) passed had the best hugs and the best laugh, you will be greatly missed, and may God be with Aunt Faye and you're children during this time! We love you, now all the brothers are together again ❤

My sympathy to Faye, Kevin and Keith and the extended family. I had the privilege to work very closely with Cletus for over 20 years at Martin LImestone. In fact for most of those years he was my boss and mentor and patiently taught me a great deal about business. I will cherish what he taught me, how he encouraged me and the many fond memories always. I would not be who I am today without working with great people like Cletus. My prayers are with you all at this time. May God give you great comfort and peace.

Thanks a lot Dale. I’ll also share this with my mother and Keith.
