He loved Iowa Hawkeyes, Harleys and The Raiders. He worked many jobs in his life including construction, tinkered around with cars, helping his daughter with The Can Store and helped run a daycare. For many years when he did daycare, everyone even to this day, called him grandpa. He loved spending time with his grandchildren and great grandkids going on walks and to the park. He would be seen riding his wheelchair to get his morning coffee at Casey’s and out talking to his neighbors and friends. He was on crutches or in a wheelchair most of his life but that didn’t stop him from enjoying it.

We would like to give a big Thank you to Prairie View in Sanborn for helping take such great care of him, was a blessing to have his granddaughter, Destiny, there when we couldn’t always be because of Covid.
