Story as told by his daughter, Amanda

My dad was Superman. He was incredibly smart and outgoing. He was the type of guy that was just really supportive. If you had a dream, he always was the first one to back you up and support you or help you out with whatever you needed.

For his job he was in the Special Forces for the United States Air Force. In honor of my dad, there is a plaque up at his former job and our family put ornaments up in his honor, as well.


Outside of work he loved to fix cars and watch football! The Buffalo Bills were his favorite, and he coached baseball for many years. Anything to do with the outdoors he loved, whether it was hiking or just taking a drive.

He also loved being around people. He was passionate about his family and was the greatest dad and grandfather.

My dad passed away in May of 2018, and left behind 6 grandkids, 4 children, and his wife, all whom he loved dearly. When he passed the littlest grandchild was only 3 months old. He would have loved to watch them grow.

He was able to donate his heart, lungs, eyes, and various tissues. Our family is so happy and proud to say that he helped other people in need after his passing. We miss him so much.
