One daughter was born to this union. He was building a small farm of rabbits and chickens with his wife, Rashell and daughter, Ariya. He enjoyed the harvest of the garden he worked on with his mom and wife. He loved the farm life and was a true country boy. He also enjoyed hunting in the fall with his dad and brothers-in-law. He loved to take his wife Rashell and his daughters Amelia and Ariya on drives or to go fishing. He was nocturnal and loved to play video games and read avidly. He is missed by so many who knew and loved him. He has found his way home.
