He will be mourned by many friends and family. He was a kind man with a gentle heart. He was proud to be a professional estimator. He possessed a special gift of teaching and loved to teach his trade to others. He enjoyed watching reruns many, many times 🙂of classic TV shows. History, crime and police documentaries were his passion as well. He won’t be able to finish Virgin River or The Chosen series he enjoyed so much. He loved playing with animals and children. He started his own Facebook page, Muscle Madness, to encourage people to feel good about themselves and getting healthy. He didn’t hide the fact, he was very proud to have 54 inch arms in his 50’s. He had such a big heart and will be missed by many. Rest in peace.
