Junior was a man who lived to fish and loved to fish.He took the sport seriously and rarely came home empty handed. Fishing the Willamette River for Springer Chinook salmon was his all time favorite way to spend his day.When he’d come home which a bright Chinook salmon he’d be all smiles. And sometimes they’d be up to thirty pounds. He was always ready for his next day on the river.Whether it was in a boat or on a bank it didn’t matter as long as he was trying for his next big catch. He also enjoyed a good home cooked meal. Deserts were his favorite especially pies. Any kind but apple was his favorite. He also enjoyed putting together puzzles or a good game of Yahtzee or poker especially if it included a monitory win.He always made life fun. Always quick witted. Always smiling.So many great memories.He’ll always be close in our hearts and never forgotten.

My memories of Grandpa are of a man that everyone was in awe of. He was deeply respected and everyone went to him when they
needed help. He was always tinkering on cars or remodeling the house. He'd be putting tile in or updating a bathroom, knocking a wall down, or once even put random pieces of carpet squares all over the wall like wallpaper. It was odd, but actually kind of cool. lol...Once when I was little, I was crying over something and he told me that he loved the song I was singing. I remember getting really mad at him and telling him I wasn't singing a song. He just kept saying how much he loved that song and so I deliberately stopped crying so he couldn't hear it anymore. HA!!! I was soooo smart!!! lol.....I hadn't seen Grandpa in a long time, not since I went home for my sisters surgery which has to be around 6 or 7 years now. When I saw him he was telling me jokes and cracking himself up and I thought, now this is a man I didn't know existed. It was nice to see another side of him. I will miss you Grandpa, and it's times like this that I wish I lived closer to home. You were so loved and I'm glad that you are with Grandma again.
