David Werts was my Poppop, I am one of Wayne and Stacy's kids. Poppop loved to tell stories, and was always able to make everyone laugh. He love to play cards and I remember teaching him how to play Bull. He love animals and had many cats and dogs in his lifetime, and one kitten from one of his cats litters was given to my family and she is now my best furry friend. He loved cars and worked on them for decades. He passed that love to his kids and even to some of his grandkids. Poppop was an absolute angel and he will be forever missed. Love you Poppop, say hi to your pets for me ❤❤❤
