He lived life to the fullest. In his younger years; he enjoyed fishing, snowmobiling, and road trip adventures with his kids. He was a resilient person, and lived his life the way he truly wanted to live. We will miss his care and love, his laughter, his quirks, and the ease we felt just being around him.
