He had a servant’s heart and was always there for his family when he was physically able to help on projects around a car, a farm, or a house. He also was blessed with many talents and loved to share those talents. More recently, he was known for his beautiful stained glass projects, his love of bread baking (then watching others enjoy that bread), and most recently his love of harnessing and utilizing electricity from solar panels. He never ceased to amaze his family with learning to do new things. He was also somewhat of a jokester and loved to laugh. He loved his family and he will be missed by all who knew and loved him. Due to Covid-19, there will be no formal service. The family will have a private memorial service at a later date.
