He was a logger for many years and met several friends and loggers along the way. Once you held a conversation with him, you were left with a lasting memory of a one of a kind man and most likely a nickname. He was always leaving you with a smile. The love he had for all of his grandchildren was immeasurable. He enjoyed attending the races, where he shared memories of his children and himself and was proud to see the tradition continue in the family. He also enjoyed watching his grandchildren play ball and looked forward to family vacations around the country.
