of his favorite hobbies was to visit garage sales; many times he
would end up fixing his newfound items and re-selling them. His
favorite items include watches that he would fix and donate to
mission projects. He was very talented with his hands and fixed many
items for his family as well. Visitation will be from 2:00 - 8:00 pm on
