self-built “campsite.” He liked taking walks on the River Bluff Trail or down the country road, bicycling,
canoeing (with an occasional unplanned swim ;), shooting sports, mowing the grass, tinkering in the
garage, grilling out, and riding his motorcycle to see his grandkids. He loved making milkshakes,
drinking coffee with his sweets, and munching on kettle corn and sharing those things with his kids and
