What about work boot prints with the words "He's walked beside me for 75 years" A play on the footprints poem and his job as a city worker.

I would put the names of the other family members on the sides.

Make that sheet into an open book by cutting a 'v' shape out of the center and curve the ends a bit.
Then make a cross on one side and footprints on the other OR around the bottom of the cross.

i like the book (bible) idea. you could ask your aunt if he had a favorite scripture or look up one that would apply. i can't think of it off hand but there is one that talks about God giving long life... or you could put one about a blessed life etc.
