He loved trail riding and making the weeklong wagon train ride to Dixie Nationals with the Wesson Wagon Train. He enjoyed his pigeons and watching them race as well as enjoying running his hunting dogs. Above everything he adored his family and spent time with them. His grandchildren were the absolute light of his world. He never met a stranger and will be missed by everyone that knew him.
