He curled with his dad and brother. 

He loved working with horses and teaching his children to ride. He also played the guitar and sang and enjoyed camping until his passing. 

He spent more than 40 years running heavy equipment. He was always involved in his children’s and grandchildren’s lives and spent a lot of time helping others in any way he could. 

He was admired by many and will be missed by many.
