He worked for the Great Northern, Burlington Northern and BNSF Railroads for over 40 years.

During his life he enjoyed all types of hunting, fishing, playing golf and woodworking, making many special pieces of furniture treasured by his family. On a sunny day he could be found in the backyard spending time with his wife, tending to the yard, watching birds and feeding the squirrels.

We will have a celebration of his life sometime in the summer.

In his remembrance, catch some fish, go hunting, play a round of golf, and always give a hug to the ones you love.
