All his friends and family knew him by his preferred nick name, Dogface. He was a crazy redneck who loved going riding on his motorcycle, horseback riding, camping and fishing every chance he got. He absolutely adored being surrounded by his grandchildren and great-grandchildren as he was very family oriented. He would do anything for them. He has so many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends who loved him so much and he loved them all just as much. He would give you the shirt off his back if he thought you needed it.
