"He was able to live the simple life he loved at his small cabin in the woods by chopping wood, hauling water and enjoying the solitude like a true frontiersman. He was a friend to all he met and they grew to like and respect him. He was an incredibly honest man, gave his time willingly and was devoted to his family, whom he loved dearly. We will all miss our loved one," his family said.
