  • To all of the family I extend my sincere sympathies at the passing of a great man. His influence & legacy will extend into future generations. Influence was not something he strived for rather was just what happened as he went about living his best life & showing his children, grandchildren, extended family & friends how to do the same. God bless this new angel & may He also hold close all whom he loved & who loved him. ~ Marcia Schneider Eisenbraun Custer SD (11/22/2020)
