We have known Vance for a long time. Vance was a funny guy and could make you laugh. Anytime you loose a parent its something you never get over but sometimes feel relief for they aren't suffering any longer and knowing you will meet again one day. My condolences to Richard and Sarah and all of Vance's family. And I am thankful for Vance serving his country. Love to all Tommy and Connie Bryant

We had a lot of fun with Vance going to the lake skiing and fishing. He enjoyed feeding our horses apples all the time. He helped me more than once, round them up when they got loose. He was a good uncle to his nephews and nieces. I loved the time I shared working for him. I never wanted to let him down. He was an awesome contractor. He was so proud of his children and grandchildren. He enjoyed sharing pictures of them with us. Rest in peace my brother, until we meet again. Love you, Toni n Don Creasey.
