His trademark was his yellow truck and he never missed a chance to make his presence known with his flashing lights. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, trap shooting, country music and spending time with his family and friends. He especially enjoyed spending time with his son Bo. He was always willing to help someone in need and never expecting something else in return. He will be deeply missed by his family and friends and by all those whose lives he touched.
