He instilled the love of camping and the outdoors with his family. Enjoying the mountains and later purchasing a cabin where many family memories were created. He was a man of principle who taught his children the value of honesty and a strong work ethic, while also sharing his dry sense of humor (pull my finger). His other hobbies were fishing, hunting and wood working. His greatest legacy was the bond of family.
