He thought it was most important to spend time with his friends and family. People knew him as someone who liked to have fun and whose energy could fill a room.
Many people liked him because he was funny and had a great laugh. He cared about people and was kind. There aren’t enough words to describe how much love, support, and joy he brought into his home. There is no one else quite like him. Even though those who loved him will miss him a lot, his spirit lives on in everyone he touched. He will be greatly missed, but even more lovingly remembered. He was always up for a good time and liked spending time with his family and friends. He looked tough, but he was actually a big softy with a big heart.
