Tough as nails but also loved big and fiercely. He could make you laugh until you cried. He was so immensely proud of all of his family. He was a very humble man yet a true master at his craft. He will be remembered riding horses bareback through trails with no shoes or helmet on, running amuck with his siblings, cousins, and friends, laying shingles on a roof, building a barn, and snoring on a beach in Cape Cod.
