He was best known for bringing joy and happiness to the room. Always putting others in front of himself in order to help. He was a great brother, son and father. Although he was unable to join the military due to his albinism and being legally blind, he loved his country like no other. Always wearing some sort of patriotic shirt and talking about guns and country. He didn’t like handouts and believed in hard work and always doing the right thing.  He was a kid at heart, trying whenever to go to Disney with his family and friends. And if not at Disney he was working on building and shooting a new gun.
