He was a loving father of 5 children, 2 boys and 3 girls. He was a grandfather of 6 and was absolutely head over heels for his grandbabies. He was also a son, a brother, "uncle Jeffy", and a friend. My Dad was the most selfless, giving man when he was sober. He didn't have much in life but he was content with what he had, and he would give it all to anyone in need. I don't think in my 22 years of life, I ever heard my Dad talk down about someone or say any mean words about anyone. He was amazingly talented in many aspects including drawing, poems, and crafting. He loved to keep busy, if he didn't have something to build or fix he wasn't happy. My Dad was also an avid outdoors man and took pride in his hunting and fishing abilities.
