All who knew him or of him will remember him as a wonderful light and presence.  He was a 2011 graduate of Bishop Carroll High School . He was an outstanding athlete excelling  in  football, and was a six time state wrestling competitor. He was an avid fisherman and hunter and was an accomplished gardener. He was a Union Carpenter and superintendent for Steel Mountain Construction and was never satisfied until the job was completed to the very best. Friends will be received from 2-8pm Friday at the Serenko-Claar Funeral Home, Portage. Friends also received   from 10am Saturday till time of services at 1pm at the Martindale Alliance Church. Reverend Timothy Dietrich officiating. Committal will be at Mount Moriah Cemetery. He always knew what to say to put a smile on someone's face. He had a beautiful soul; he was the light that lit up the room. He touched the lives of everyone he met. He gave the biggest hugs and made everyone he touched feel extra special. He was selfless and always put other people first. David's quote says it best: "Pray so big and so often that when God meets you at Heaven's Gate, he says with a smile: Kid you kept me very busy!"
