  1. I’m going to miss grandpa. He was a wonderful man. It will be hard to walk into the house and not see him in his chair watching football and sipping on his favorite drink. He was the first one I always noticed and acknowledged when I walked in. I can’t express the gradtitude I felt for him for taking my brother in and caring for him like his father. Randy will be a great man and father thanks to Enoch’s kind heart. I love you all and I feel the loss of a great man. I wish I was there to confort you, but know that you all are in our hearts and we pray for Enoch and the rest of you. Love you guys, The Soriano Family

  4. From my family to yours our deepest sympathy and condolences on hearing of the passing of Enoch. Enoch was truly one of a kind. I remember when I was growing up going over to the Hartland house one of my most vivid memories was Enoch coming home from work he would have a cocktail sit in his chair turn on the TV to sports or news and I would sit on the couch to watch as well and Enoch was totally cool with that he would always ask me how I have been and what I have been up to. Jean and Enoch always made me feel welcome in there home. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to go and see Enoch on Easter Sunday I showed him photos of my family and I, Enoch had a smile on his face and that is how I will remember Enoch. Sincerely with Love, Michael Kona and family

  5. Kelly and family, Please accept my deepest sympathy in the loss of your father. I have great memories of early AYSO days at Newton with your dad as the coach.

  9. Well, not sure where to start, I am very sad – I love you Enoch and will truly miss you. I will always be greatful that we had that short, yet sweet visit Easter Sunday. Thank you for never passing judgement, for always showing me love and kindness, for loving Jeremy (budgy galupy), for supporting me with any decision I made without question, for your generous simplistic advice, and for remaining a father-in-law to me for all these years. I will miss you and will always dearly love you. Love, Becky

  10. I will miss you Enoch. You always made me feel like one of your own kids whenever I was at your home. I am going to miss your cooking and especially those pyrogies however they are spelled. Thanks for always loving Jeremy, from before he was even born. Where he was concerned your love never faltered, as was the same for your entire family. You were and will always be the gravity that keeps everyones feet on the ground through thick and thin. I remember our last talk. I cherish it. You said I could stop by anytime after I just showed up one day. well, I won’t stop talking to you, I know you will still be listening. Look after Jeremy for me, I love him so much,I know how much you do too.If you see my grandparents, tell them I miss them. Meek

  11. Kelly and family, I’m sure this is a most difficult time for all of you, but with support of friends and family, and with the excellent memories of your exceptional father, I believe that you will all pull through. You were all so fortunate to have had him bless your lives. What an extraordinary man! We hope that his memory will always be a source of joy and happiness for you. With our thoughts and prayers… Barb and Frank
