My brother will be greatly missed. His tenacity to meet new people and make everyone smile was an astonishing skill that came so easily from him. Memories of us jumping out the window to head to the church dance, playing 2 on 2 and smashing in Lykens, or hanging out having a beer in Boise. He will be missed by more then can be counted.
