A great memory the boys have of their father: He taught us to work and We will forever be grateful for that. He brought all us (boys) up driving a John Deere while he and the others loaded and stacked hay, to plowing the land, sowing the seed, irrigating the fields to cutting and bailing hay. Showed us to work cattle, sheep, hair goats, and meat goats. All while keeping up with his and mothers real-estate property.
