Our parents were married in San Francisco in August of 1963. They moved to Elyria shortly after where they owned Model T Towing for many years. In 1985 they moved their family to Ft. Myers, Florida, where they enjoyed time with their kids and grandchildren. Rita worked in the tourism industry for many years which allowed her to make many friends. We loved our parents very much and are happy to see them hand in hand again forever in eternity. We love and miss you both!
