I remember many summers spent with uncle Joe and aunt Helen. I remember many camping trips and I also remember uncle Joe driving the boat and pretty much teaching me how to ski. So much fun going to Boyd lake, Jackson reservoir, Glendo, fishing around Yampa. I remember him playing the guitar and singing. What fun to see him in his big rig and hearing him blow the horn. Most recently remembering him coming to bowling tournaments I participated in and getting together with all of us to go to Bruce's in Severance. He even made it to Vegas and watched me bowl. Going to eat when I ventured north was always a great time too. I love you and will miss you uncle. Thinking of aunt Helen and all the kids and grandkids. Love you all too.
