We cherish the time we spent with him, sharing his love of fishing, camping, hunting, traveling and riding motorcycles. He held friendships across time, and cared as if a day hadn’t passed. He was a steady presence in our lives and whether family or friend, he could be counted on. The memory of the man willing to take any adventure with us will keep him close to our hearts.
