Most of all, he enjoyed spending time with his family of friends. He never forgot his buddies from his youth, opening his heart to all new friends he met along his journey. He is survived by his sister Dawn Anderson, brother-in-law Tommy Bowers, aunt and uncle Irene and Newell Ode of Badger, MN, aunt Gretchen Kjellberg of Brooklyn Center, MN and his many cousins.
