Life Story Info
Dad, the greatest man I have and will ever know! You have taught me so much, and introduced me to my favorite hobby hunting and camping which we spent many great memories together in the outdoors. But most of all you taught me how to be a man and the importance of hard work, reliability and how to raise a family. You always put us kids and mom before anything. I will miss sitting on the couch with you and just talking, you are a great father and grandfather. I love you so much and I know I will see you again!
Hunter and Pops!
