He loved spending time in the kitchen, often bringing the family together with his delicious meals. He was a skilled mechanic who knew just about everything when it came to cars and enjoyed sharing that knowledge. His grandbabies were the light of his life, and he truly cherished every moment spent with them. An avid fisherman, he loved casting a line and enjoyed the serenity and a story or two shared by the water. He loved trips up north and walks through sterling state park where he found peace in nature’s beauty. Known as a talker, he could strike up a conversation with anyone sharing a memory and a good laugh. His warmth and vibrant spirit will be deeply missed by all who knew him.</p><p>He was a member of U.A.W.
