His beauty will continue to transcend us all with his relentless approach to life and the obstacles in front of him. He loved fun.

His knowledge of big machinery and heavy hauling was unmatched above everything, and most of all his unconditional love for his kids was undoubtably obvious to all. Read the rest of this entry »
