He enjoyed the outdoors including hunting, fishing, horses and camping in the wilderness. He was well-known for his story telling. After retirement, he held various jobs including owning a feed store in Helena and owning the Kozy Korner bar/restaurant in Seeley Lake.

He is survived by his wife Marie; daughters Robin and Roxeen (Wieder); son Ron; grandchildren Breanne, Nathan and Hunter; two great grandchildren Brayden and Emma; and numerous nieces and nephews.
