He loved spending time outdoors, hunting, quading, fishing. He enjoyed bowling and was an avid boxer and baseball player when he was younger. His passion was his family. He loved spending time with us, telling stories, teasing us, big hugs and always letting us know how proud he was to be a Husband, Dad, Grampy and Papa. Dad was a talented carpenter who left his mark on many places and in all our hearts.

Thank you Dad for showing us strength, Integrity, but most of all unconditional love. You will be so missed but never forgotten.
