He worked as a heavy equipment operator most of his life. In his spare time, he enjoyed fishing, hunting, camping, and just being in the great outdoors. He was known by family and friends as an outstanding family man who put his family first. They paid this tribute to him: He loved his family unconditionally. He was a good friend, a hard worker, and dependable--the person you called when you needed help. He loved the Lord and was seeking a deeper walk with Him.
