Beloved husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and friend.

A believer in community he was an executive member of the Trsye Benevolent society for over 50 years keeping the village folks close through dances, picnics, kids Christmas parties and zapost lunches.
He ran the Belfield restaurant for 30 years before his retirement in 1993. Working with many partners and friends throughout this time. Saturday morning breakfasts with his sons and grandkids were a highlight, as were the many family Sundays cleaning up after banquets in the early days.
