My Father was a friend to many and always tried to help the people around him. He spent many days fixing car problems for local residents and was active in the community. He loved driving the trolley for events held in Cathlamet and could be seen every year in the St. Patrick's Day parade there in Cathlamet. He treated everyone he met with respect not matter the background you came from. He worked very hard to develop a program that provides backpacks full of food for in-need children.
