He also worked as the Foreman at the Perry Park Center until he retired at the age of 80. He was a member of St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church and the Knights of Columbus. He was a loving father and husband. He enjoyed a day of hard work, farming cattle, dancing, sharing life stories, eating ice cream and attending picnics. He always had a story to tell for anyone that would listen. Once he knew your name he would remember you for life. If you needed to know the name of someone, he was the resident historian as he could recall names and places of everyone he ever came into contact with. He was sharp and witty; determined and strong. He will be greatly missed; yet his legacy will carry on.
