Whether it was carpentry, welding, fixing cars, playing baseball, bowling on a league team, shooting pool or throwing darts, he put his heart and soul into each and every endeavor he undertook. He was an avid gardener and took great pride in growing a wide array of produce for his family. He especially enjoyed growing tomato plants and would look forward to eating sandwiches made from freshly picked tomatoes. He was a great friend to animals of all types and taught his children to be kind to them and to value their existence. He was a very generous and caring man. He loved being a father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He had four daughters. They are Judith Ann Priebe (Fred), Barbara Jo Fenton (Marty), Sandra Louise Webb (Carla Frank), and Peggy Frances Tyler (Frank). He had six grandchildren.
