He was a convert to the LDS church and enjoyed many callings in the church, especially the time he spent working with the youth and his service in the Manti temple. He had a very strong testimony of the gospel and demonstrated his beliefs in the way he cared for his family. He will be remembered for never letting any visitor to his home go hungry; he especially enjoyed cooking breakfast for his family and friends. He was a wonderful dad who took every opportunity to tell his wife, children and grandchildren how much he loved them.
