As family and friends say “HE WAS ONE OF A KIND AND WILL BE MISSED”, He was always joking around with everyone and had us all on our toes, because if we did something crazy he would be the one to call us out on it. He always had a smile on his face and always was there for everyone. He was always saying to people “Now watch so that you can learn, because some day you will need to know this and can do it on your own.” He always was teaching his kids things because he knew one day they would be on their own and would need to know that skill to survive in this world.
