Dub was an avid pool player and once played against the Legendary Minnesota Fats’. He loved life, family, friends, a good joke, hunting, fishing, boating, archery, and a tasty cigar. He built a cabin on current river and enjoyed mechanic work. He was an outdoorsman who could name every tree and plant in the wild. His favorite musical instrument was the fiddle.

Dad was a compassionate person with a big heart and a big smile. He was very appreciative of everyone who helped him during the last three years of life including all his friends who provided rides, Above and Beyond staff, Five Rivers Home Health, Roselyn and Dale Carden, nurses, VA staff, Mary Green, Sandy Glasgow and “Mo”. He was especially grateful to everyone who visited him, and just spent time with him. See you all in the next life
