He loved his family and fishing but most importantly he chose to love the Lord. He would sit with his daughter-in-law and study the scriptures to have a better understanding.
To his family he was the best daddy, uncle and papa. He taught them about character, honor and integrity. He took them hunting and fishing and taught them how to ride a motorcycle and drive a truck. He was always there for his family.
