September 26, 1986 - March 7, 2018

He was born September 26, 1986 in Mankato, Minnesota. He was the fourth of four children. He graduated South Medford High School in 2005.
He was a gentle, kind, and considerate man. He could light up any room with his smile. He loved children, fishing, exploring, westerns, and music. He could play almost any instrument, but loved the guitar, drums, and harmonica best.
