He also drove a semi hauling grain for Bahler Brothers Trucking for the last 30 years and enjoyed the time he spent doing this. He was a minister at the Apostolic Christian Church of Wolcott for 46 years. His quiet, gentle spirit and pleasant personality made him many friends throughout the years. He was a special friend to his children and grandchildren and loved spending time with them.
