He was a truck driver, retiring from Yellow Freight.He grew up and worked hard on the family dairy farm, and farming was his life-long love. He was very forward-thinking as a farmer, such as he was one of the first in the area to have a cattle trailer, and he stockpiled fall pasture grass to reduce the dependance on feeding hay, which are now both considered standard practices in farming today.His children are forever grateful for the happy home their parents provided for them. There was a lot of love and laughter.Condolences may be extended to the family at burnsidefuneralhome.com.Friends will be received at Burnside Funeral Home, 607 S.
