His family was very important to him whether it was helping to build a house, helping to fix a car or anything else his family needed, he would be there.  He was a content and patient man who was a jack of all trades, able to fix anything and was proud of the fact that he used all of his equipment for its full working life.  He was a hard worker, often seen shoveling the snow at the motel.  He was known for his tremendous smile and he always enjoyed some ice cream.
