Those of you who know my Dad knew he liked to be doing something. Generally out side,he loved to mow grass, cut down trees .or fix something from tractor's to bird houses.He was a man who could do just about anything. Electrical, plumbing, carpentry.He even taught himself to weld.He taught me much while I found myself often holding a light a board or some tools while he worked on many projects. I didn't know it then but he taught me much.
He was a thinker and often keep his thoughts To himself. We will miss him ,seeing out mowing or just out puttering around.
I know it's to late but thanks for everything
