As a family, they have fond memories of summer vacations in Northern Minnesota. He then worked for Minnehaha Co.

Guard as the Base Security Manager. He also drove a school bus for a few years before he retired permanently. He filled his days running things at home while Nelva worked, riding his Harley, training his puppy, Hope, and wishing he was fishing.
He loved sitting by a campfire at Cutty’s Resort in Okoboji, eating the “Belly Buster Breakfast” at Marlins Grill, and shooting targets with his friends.
He will be remembered for his love of Harleys, Fords, and Boston Terriers, his famous hours of storytelling, the backyard troll-(ask the grandkids), his love of his family and their welfare, right up to the very end, and his faithfulness to his Heavenly Father.
