He was an avid gardener and could fix just about anything that needed fixing, from automobiles to electical and plumbing. He taught all his four sons to work on their own vehicles, which they all still do. He was always there for his children no matter what they needed. Anytime you visited he would fix you tea or coffee or whatever you wanted to drink, and always sent you home with things from his garden. He spent time with his grandchildren showing them how to plant and pick things, or they would just follow Grandpa around the property. He is Very missed by all his family.
