young age.

doors with his dad and

uncles who spent a great

deal of time hunting and

fishing with him. He was

an expert marksman.

avid hunter, he had a

especially his pets, Fluffy,

Buster, Lily and Sophie.

young man, a professional

trickster. His mother says

second career. Unfor-

playing pranks on his un-

suspecting father and sis-

always be remembered by

his family and friends.
