Born in Honesdale, son of the late Richard Irving and Darlene Cook Breidenstein, he had been employed by Maui Corp for 16 years before his illness..
He was a loving husband and a beloved father and grandfather; he devoted his life to his loving wife, Kim. He was a kind, giving and strong man, always ready to offer a helping hand.

He touched the hearts of many and will be remembered and missed every day.
