Since retiring, they’ve enjoyed time in Glacier National Park, Alaska, Rochester- Mayo, Maine and Arizona. They visited their daughters’ families in Oklahoma and D.C. If he was in Casper, he was in his shop, BBQing with his buddies, or fishing at Pathfinder. He also loved his church family at GSLC, the church he helped build in 1981. He set the roof, Shepard and Cross with his crane when the church was built.
