He attended school in Littleton Colorado, graduated from Arapahoe High School in 1991 with honors. He attended CU Boulder for a short period and decided engineering was not what he wanted.
He was very active in Boy Scouts for 9 years. Culminating by earning his Eagle Scout rank and honor in 1990. He worked at Peaceful Valley Scout Ranch for 2 summers. He was singing Baby Shark before it became so popular, so for the record, Boy Scouts sang it first. He learned Leadership, Responsibility and Loyalty. He learned many life skills and took up coin collecting as a hobby.
When he started working at Walmart 15 years ago, he met his very best Friend and Team mate both in work and his personal life. They did the Susan Komen Breast Cancer Walk several years and enjoyed being part of the team, he was walking for a friend at work and his Grandmother. He had Covid 19 in March of 2020. He was suffering from Long Haulers symptoms and left Walmart. He was one of the originals that opened the store.
Work prevented him from attending many Avalanche games, but when he did he was an avid fan. When we talked he would tell me I recorded the game last night so don’t tell me the score.
