He is survived by his loving wife Lindsey and his children Tammy, Terry, Rhea, Angela (Jay) and Cody, his 8 grandchildren, 2 great grandchildren as well as his nieces, nephews and friends.

His passing will leave a deep hole in many hearts. He worked hard, played harder and loved to charm the ladies. He loved the land, to play his guitar and sing. He thoroughly enjoyed his hunting and fishing trips. He played ball in his younger years, enjoyed good food, smoking doobies with the boys and of course riding his Harley and doing road trips.

He had a passion for volunteering and spent many hours with the West Kootenay Toy Run, Eagles Organization and Eagle Riders. He was a proud Union man representing Operating Engineers Local 115 and will be missed by all who knew him.
