This big guy had a big heart for helping others. He loved spending time up at the lake on his pontoon boat with his faithful dog, Buddy, as First Mate and his Second Mate, Willigan. He always surrounded himself with his family; friends and he also loved hunting, the campfire stories and nature itself. He always took the scenic route for driving so he could see the county.
There will be a Family Camp Out Memorial on May 17, 2014 at Stoney Gorge Reservoir.
