He was a cabinet maker by trade.  Hobbies included making violins, dulcimers, and carved figures.  He loved horses and old cars.  He was also ready at any moment to tell a story to anyone that would listen.  He will be greatly missed by everyone that knew and loved him.  He can truly say, “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.”  2 Timothy 4:7
