He could pick up an instrument and play it within minutes. He loved to play the guitar with a group of friends and sing. He loved to tell stories and he would have the whole room laughing. Camping with friends was one of his favorite past times. He loved his wife, Judy and his children and grandchildren more than anything in the world. Also, he was quick to ask anybody if they knew Jesus.
Friends and family will serve as pallbearers.
