He enjoyed many years of Labrador Retrievers running around the house and trips to the Great Northwest which was a joy to him. His new puppy "Cooper " gave him many good cuddles these last few months. Many great times were had with special friends who were like family to him hanging at home and taking trips to Port A. After retiring from 30 years of working in the Metals business he enjoyed working at the river with his friends at Rocking R. He is survived by his wife of 46 years Judy K.
