He was a fighter and fought all the way until God called him home. He made so many friends over the years. He never met a stranger and would give the shirt off of his back or a meal to someone in need. He always found the good in people and when asked why he was helping someone he didn’t know, he would say that everyone needs someone. In the past several years he began working on bicycles which he did to pass time and he enjoyed.
