One of his favorite hobbies was carpentry and he could build anything he designed from furniture and cabinets to the home in which he and his family resided. As an outdoorsman, he enjoyed fishing, hunting, and helping his wife maintain the beautiful garden admired by all who visited. At one point, he even tried his hand at ranching, fulfilling his dream of raising cattle on the family property. The center of his life was his family and he loved them with his whole heart. He was a loving husband, father, son, brother, grandfather, and uncle. His memory will forever be cherished by those who loved him.
