PHOENIX: (602) 906-9600 | PEORIA: (623) 486-1955

Date of Birth: November 03, 1951

Date of Death: September 09, 2019

Survived by his dearest wife of 39 years Nancy, sisters Cathy and Suzy, two children Sarah and Jacob, their 6 children Nolan, Colt, Brynlee, Reagan, Abigail, and Kaitlynn, 4 stepsons Jeff, Lonny, Tim, and Jay, and their 5 children Fawn, Nathaniel, Ray, Katherine, and Tucker. From a young age, he was never one to shy from challenges. If he made his mind up to accomplish something he unequivocally mastered it. He enjoyed water skiing, being a pilot, riding horses, building things especially custom homes, and being a published author. He always questioned with boldness any premise or conventional wisdom that did not fit his strong sense of justice or fairness, no matter the personal cost. He was never quick to anger and always eager to help. Whether fixing something for someone or offering wise council or even just an encouraging word, he spread his knowledge and caring to anyone who needed it, willfully and selflessly. He impacted many lives in ways large and small and in the end, knew how much he was loved and would be missed and left with the peace of knowing that he would finally achieve his most important goal, one day meeting Jesus.
