“Shine” as he was known by his family and friends loved the outdoors. He loved fishing and spent many summers on the Osage River. He enjoyed hunting, spring turkey season, and the fall deer season. Most of all, he loved his family and especially his mom. Shine would look at his mother and say “Love your face” or “Love your Hair”. He was a joker, loved to laugh and aggravate his nephews. He considered himself a mechanic, but like most car guys, he lacked the skill that attributed to his speed in completing a project. He loved spending time with friends and family. He will be sadly missed.
