He loved life, always with a smile and eager to learn. He enjoyed sponge Bob and the various farm activities in his cowboy boots. He loved his Aunt Jenny’s mule, Cole, Bob the coonhound, and Grizzly. He was an active little boy that always wanted to be involved, such as working in the garden with his great-grandpa. His favorite song was ‘Honky Tonk, Bedonky Donk’. He anticipated going duck hunting and was prepared with his camo clothes. He liked the color green and enjoyed watching his dad race cars.
