He was kind, gentle and never met a stranger. He helped people of all ages, teaching them the native ways and loved doing it. Last summer he came out to give lessons in "putting up salmon" with my daughter, he was still a little weak but wanted to talk her through the process. She loved having him there, and it's an experience she will treasure.
We would also see him at basketball games, watching the young people, he had great faith in them and would often give them encouragement for just being there. That encouragement meant a lot to the young players, we know, for one of them was my grandson.
He will be missed by many and he was loved by many. Our prayers to his wife, Diana, his children, and his big extended family.
