He enjoyed hunting, gardening and in 1967, while working as a fire policeman, he assisted in stopping traffic in Dallastown when President Lyndon B.

He will be forever in our hearts. A special thank you is extended to the SpiriTrust Hospice and staff who were so helpful and to all of our Christian friends and neighbors for your support and help during this difficult time.
