He was a hard working man who understood what hard times really meant to people, often taking trade for payment from a number of locally owned businesses. He was a remarkable cook, believed your word was only as good as your handshake, and had a laugh and smile that could light up a room. He was most of all, a man dedicated to his beloved family. He was a humble and simple man and will be missed by all who knew him. Memorial service will be held Thursday, January 24, 2013 at Spokane CREMATION AND FUNERAL SERVICE, 12:30 PM , 2832 N.
