He enjoyed seeing the countryside, traveling cross-country, driving big rigs. He was not only a fantastic brother, but an amazing friend. He was an avid hunter and outdoorsman and will be greatly missed. The family wishes to thank Dr. John Godke and the nurses and staff of Our Lady of the Lake and the Daniels Clinic of St. Francisville for their care.
