His earlier years he was a sheet metal layout specialist who helped design and build military and civilian flight simulator system structures to include the nose cone-flight simulator for the U.S. first space shuttle program. Later he worked as a mechanic throughout his life.
Dad was a multi-skilled man who knew how to fix anything and everything. Dad found the Lord and got baptized and decided he wanted to spread the gospel and became a preacher and traveled around to prisons to minister to the inmates. Dad loved the Lord and his family with all his heart he gave endlessly and did not ask for anything in return. His passion was Jesus, fishing and spending time with family and friends. This brought him the most Joy. Dad loved life and loved to joke and make people laugh, he always lent a helping hand to those in need wherever he could. Dad was a great man and taught us about God, Loving each other, respect and so many other things. He will be greatly missed until we are all together again celebrating in heaven.
