A cowboy at heart, rough around the edges with a heart of gold. This man will be missed beyond measure. A man of many talents, keeper of the bees, the best apple juice maker, favorite fishing buddy, dear friend, husband, father, and proud grandpa. Until we meet again, love without end.
“Go rest high on that mountain Son, your work on earth is done. Go to heaven a shoutin’ Love for the Father and the son.”-Vince Gill
