Great guy! Dedicated to his wife and children. He made time to enjoy the outdoors, camping, fishing and boating with the whole family. I was fortunate enough to join the a few times when I was in my teens. I’m sure he will be missed but not forgotten. My condolences to the family and hopeful they can pull together and support Roberta during this loss and time of adjusting to great change. Regards, Steve mayfield
