Spooky was a caring person with a big heart. He was fun spirited. He was always trying to make someone laugh but serious at times. He loved spending time with the family, going camping, on hikes, to the beach, spending time outdoors and hanging with the kids. He will be deeply missed by more people then we can imagine. He was most happy being busy. He was our go to guy if we needed help with anything like your car washed or detailed. If you needed help moving, fixing anything, yard work, painting, working on your trailer, he was always there with a smile and quick to help out wherever and whenever. He was quiet, and did not talk much till he got to know you, but then he was a chatter box.
"Thought of you today, but that is nothing new. I thought about you yesterday and days before that too. I think of you in silence, I often speak your name. All I have are memories and a picture in a frame. Your memory is a keepsake, with which I will never part. God has you in his keeping. I have you in my heart."
