My brother was an avid fisherman and loved the outdoors. He spent many summers at my parent’s cabin fixing it up and fishing on the lake.
One of his passions was collecting lighthouses. When my brother passed away we discovered that he had hundreds of various types of lighthouses. There were plenty of them to be shared with family and friends after his passing.
My brother was also a very kind, generous individual always helping those in need. He would stop what he was doing if he knew that someone else needed help. It was evident that his generosity continued even after his death. One of his wishes was to be an organ, tissue and eye donor. My family is extremely proud of his decision to give the gift of life to others. His family and friends miss him dearly and will continue to honor his memory.
