He and his wife Donna served as ordinance workers in the Provo temple for 5 years and the Vernal temple 7 years. He especially loved Temple work and all the special people he worked with.
He had many, many hobbies, 22 to be exact. He loved flying, the mountains and everything to do with the outdoors. He loved his family, young people and all of his friends.
He will be deeply missed by all those who were blessed to know him.
