A tall quiet man with a strong presence.

A tall quiet man with a strong presence who impressed everybody he met with his courtesy,charm and obvious honesty.
He treated all men ‘Lords or Labourers’ with respect and all women as ladies.
I was immensely proud of him and I am privileged to be his son.
