As a father, he enjoyed activities with his children such as skiing, camping, fishing and boating. His lifelong love since boyhood was aviation. He was a pilot and always dreamed of building his own plane. We wish to thank the Holy Spirit Parish ministry for all of the loving care and time spent in our behalf. "Absolute Compassion Hospice" came and amazed us with their skill and helped right when we needed it the most. We are truly grateful. Funeral Services will be held Friday, June 16, 9:30 a.m. at Holy Spirit Church, 3159 Land Park Dr., Sacramento, CA.
