He was a man who enjoyed the simple things in life. He loved taking adventures that led him outdoors enjoying his cabin out in the woods, skiing, biking, four-wheeling, boating, canoeing, hunting and much more. He was a loving father, who shared his love of adventure and knowledge with his two daughters. Learning how to put a worm on a hook and showing them how to fillet a fish. He enjoyed making maple syrup on the land with his father and continue to keep his father’s dream of making maple syrup on his land alive, as it was his dream as well. He had a knack for fixing things and working on vehicles. He would on many warm days go for rides on his motorcycle. He was involved in many community events.
