My dad was one of the most amazing men you could ever be blessed with meeting. He loves the outdoors and camping, fishing, hunting, hiking no matter what the weather was. Dad was so full of knowledge about all kinds of things and loved to share what he knew with anyone who would willingly listen. He was also an amazing cook just not very good at the clean up afterwards. I know he will be missed but all who had the blessing of knowing him.
