He let his love of the Lord and his Christian faith guide his life. He gave back to his community through his work at his church, local schools and civic organizations. As a volunteer coach and youth leader at his church, he was a role model and mentor. His impact was especially felt by the community's youth since he was always willing to go above and beyond if he thought it would benefit the kids. This role model and mentor influence also had a deep effect on the adults around him. He was a leader of men and inspired those around him to do their best.
