After “retirement,” he continued to work making his famous jams, jellies, and relishes.
His face lit up with pride when reading numerous letters he received from people all across the United States and as far away as Scotland, wanting to order more.
As much as he was proud of serving his country, raising cattle, and working on the farm, the thing that brought him the most joy was serving his Lord and spending time with his family. He was a faithful member of Eastside Church of Christ, where he enjoyed studying the Word and presenting the Gospel. He loved being surrounded by his children and grandchildren and enjoyed teaching them to hunt and fish. He left behind a rich legacy. He was a man of integrity, loved and respected by all, and will be greatly missed. Condolences may be left at
