His children described Mr. Ward as a man who loved his grandbabies and great grandbabies and he loved  life and worked hard and tried to keep on working even though he could no longer do so. He would do anything to help anyone in need and had a heart of gold, in spite of being stubborn....that was just Shorty. His life consisted of trucking, junking and his family.  He was our friend and he was our Daddy.
