He always enjoyed sharing stories of his travels, the wisdom to be found in the Farmer’s Almanac, hunting tips and just about anything from fixing lawn mowers and making his famous dear jerky. He lived a full life doing what he enjoyed.
The last year of his life not a day went by that we didn’t talk and he always closed our conversations, with “I love you- I love you all I pray for you all. “ with his daughter and family.
