He farmed all his life on the family farm south of Freeport. He thoroughly enjoyed driving truck. He drove truck for Fox Trucking and for Astech in his later years, whenever someone called to have a load delivered no matter what it was, he was always ready to go. He loved driving tractors, trucking, taking care of cattle, and working in the shop fixing whatever needed to be fixed working beside his brother and his nephews. He also liked to spend time with his dog and cats. Whenever he had some time off, he loved going fishing and hunting. He was a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Freeport. He will be missed by all who loved him.
