  5. What a perfect picture to use as Bro. Sanfred's obituary picture. That is how he looked almost all the time, wearing that big, warm smile that made everybody he came in contact feel welcome. There was never a doubt in anyone's mind that he modeled his life after Jesus' life. He will be sorely missed by everyone who knew him. May God comfort JoEllen, their sons, and the rest of the family.
