He enjoyed any and all things outdoors. He loved to explore the mountains on both snowmobile and ATV and enjoyed showing people new areas.
The last few years afforded him time to travel with family and friends on many fun trips. Puerto Vallarta became one of his favorite spots where he gained the name “Uncle Mustache”. In his younger years he was involved with scouting, had a love for horses and enjoyed helping around the family farm.

In 2011 he joined Search and Rescue, where he served as Captain for the past 10 years in Valley County.
