He loved to camp, fish, play golf, and travel. He and Marydot had been to 45 of the 50 states. He was an avid St. Louis Cardinal fan and watched every game on TV. He attended his first game in the new Busch Stadium this summer and received the Championship Replica Ring. Despite the extreme heat, he stayed for every inning. Most of all, he enjoyed spending time with his family. Thanksgivings spent with them together with his sisters and their families were very special to him. He had just finished restoring the first tractor he had purchased in 1955, a 1953 Farmall Super M. It was a memorable day when he was able to get on it this past month. Funeral services were held Tuesday, August 7, 2012 at 10:30 a.m. at the Kahoka United Methodist Church with Pastor Barb Hagerla officiating. Burial with military honors was in the Kahoka Cemetery. Memorials were suggested to the Kahoka United Methodist Church.
