You could often find him running up and down the sidelines yelling whether it was the soccer field, football field or motorcycle track. He always made sure that every weekend was full of fun activities enjoyed with friends and family. He loved to tease his family and friends, and could make you laugh with his hilarious stories. He especially loved to turn up the music really loud all the time and dance around the house. He enjoyed wood working and welding and teaching others how to design and make projects. He loved to tinker and could fix almost everything. He treasured his time spent with this grandchildren, Morea, Mikaile, Brock and Rylee. He would always have treats for them like pickles, cookies, big sticks, Oreo's and donuts. He loved to build them toys, furniture, and even their own toll boxes.
