He was a US Army veteran. He attended Tabor Church and had been self employed as a contractor.  He was a Historical Interpreter and gun maker. He worked for many years att Conner Prairie.

He was our hero.  He was there for us day and night and was the strongest, most giving man the family had ever known.

He always had a project going. He will always be remembered for the love and devotion to his dear wife, Tami.  He spent every single  day caring and loving her and their children and his love for God.
