In addition to his wife and children, he is survived by three grandchildren. He had no brothers or sisters. His father died when he was only four years old.
In his earlier life, he was engaged in ranching, but came to Junction in 1910 and engaged in freighting before the days of good roads and motor trucks. He experienced many of the hardships of the life of the early freighter in this section.
He was a fiddler of exceptional ability and brought happiness into the lives of many by his playing. He played for the Old Trail Drivers when they were in Junction a few years ago. As long as his health permitted he entered the old fiddlers contests.
