Before a brain injury eight years ago, he worked as a field service engineer for Siemens
and Cummings, traveling the world installing and repairing heavy mechanical equipment.
He enjoyed snow skiing; boating, white water rafting, and water skiing; playing the bass

rigatoni was legendary. In keeping with his wishes, his body will be cremated and ashes dispersed over Solitude Mountain in Utah and along the Crystal Coast of North Carolina.
