He was such a kind person. He had several different hobbies that he enjoyed doing and always loved staying busy. He loved his church and his church family and even worked as a janitor there making sure the place was clean for every event and service. He enjoyed farming and working in the garden growing corn and then grilling the corn. His favorite activity was going to dirt track races. He could always be found in the pits talking and visiting with anyone and everyone. He also spent some time working on a dairy farm and he loved animals. He enjoyed watching old TV shows like “All in the Family.” He never met a stranger and he enjoyed helping people anytime he could. He loved helping in the Mennonite Community and made many friends.
