He enjoyed hunting and fishing! He had a love for animals, and would save every single one if he could have! He spent many years working construction, and enjoyed telling you what roads he had built. He was a strong hardworking man!
Dad will be missed here on Earth, but we know you have your new body, and all 10 toes! You are no longer in pain! Dad would not want us to be crying, and to be honest he would be telling us; “stop all that crying or ima give you something to cry about!” Dad, this is not a goodbye! This is a see you later! We love you!
