Love Elder Spilker | I love Grandpa because he is a cool Grandpa! Love, Amanda | I love Grandpa because he is a fun grandpa. I remember being impressed with how he loved to play basketball with the boys. I also loved watching him play bloody knuckles with his brothers at Sherwood HIlls. Boy were they competitive! Grandpa won. He has fast hands! Love you lots, Michelle | I love Grandpa because he swears at Jazz games! Love, Andrew
26: My favorite memory of Grandpa was when we were over for dinner and we went through all his Jazz memorabilia that he has collected. I am a huge Jazz fan and we had a great time talking about all the good memories and stories he has. Love you G-pa! Sabree | I love Grandpa because he is always ready to laugh! I will never forget the time we were driving to California and Grandpa had to go to the bathroom, so he climbed out of the car and went on a wall! I will also never forget his board of education! I love you Grandpa, you are the best! Thanks for many wonderful years together! Love, Ariel
27: I love Grandpa because he led the way and served his country and was a big example to me. He also taught me to take care of the things I have. Love, Alex | I remember Grandpa when we were younger and we would come over to go swimming in the summer. He would get in the pool and chase us around with both arms in the air. Also, every Christmas when he sings "Must Be Santa." Love you Grandpa, thanks for the wonderful memories. Love, Ashley
28: I remember very fun times out back on the basketball court with his killer hook shot and Kareem goggles! Awesome! Love, Yo | I love you because you have always been a loving provider for our family and I have loved going to the Jazz games with you all these years!!! Love, Linda
29: I remember Grandpa..... *Throwing his golf club into the trees. *Laughing at jokes when he doesn't even hear them. Favorite thing about Grandpa.... * The way he tries to teach Dustin how to say German words. Love, Kristin, Dustin and Savvy | I remember every time I would visit he would take me to his office, whip out the newspaper and tell me about his fantasy league. He would also give me Jazz stuff that he got for free for being early to all the games. Love you Grandpa. Love, Dez

37: I love Grandpa because of his playful nature. I always remember being in the pool at his house and having water weenie fights. I also remember golfing with him on July 12th two years in a row, he almost beat me, but not quite. I loved being called a "cotton picker" constantly when I was younger and didn't know what it actually meant. Love ya Grandpa, Happy Birthday! Zac | I love Grandpa because he is not afraid to be himself. Also, because he makes me laugh. He is the best grandpa I know! Love you, Callie
38: The party's here! | Together Forever | Together Forever
39: The reason I love Mel?? Well, there isn't only one reason and the reasons have changed over the years. In the younger years he always seemed so shy, as though he needed someone to take care of his needs. When we first dated he was not aggressive and did not kiss me on the first date and I liked that. He needed a lot of affection and cuddling, I don't think affection was in his families dictionary and we are a touching, hugging bunch. Mel was very handsome and in my eyes still is. His hair was always beautifully groomed. He is kind and has compassion for those suffering. He is generous when needs to be and a hard nut to crack when he does not want to. Mel has always been a hard worker and a good provider for our family and that means a lot to a spouse. I love him for his kindness with me and my parents. I love when I book a trip and don't tell him until the night before (he never wants to know) and he has the best time. I love him for his activity in the church most of his life and that is super important to me and the family. He served as a ward clerk, financial clerk etc...for seven bishops and that was a great time in both of our lives. I love him when we go to the temple, there is a special feeling between us. I love you always, just because. Love, Chris
40: We love you! | Happy 80th Birthday!
