In High School in Moraga he mastered the skate board and photography was a favorite subject. After College he went to work for Pacific Bell and lived in Danville, CA where he would ride his bike to the top of Mt. Diablo every weekend. He entered his first triathlon in 2009. He learned to snowboard as a young adult and snowboarding became a passion and why he loved living in Reno, NV. He worked for Pacific Bell aka AT&T for 17 years and loved his job, co-workers and customers he met from offices in San Ramon, CA; San Francisco, CA; Raleigh North Carolina and then finally in Reno, NV. He and his wife traveled to Japan and Europe. At the time of his death he had a four year old son and a 2 year old daughter.
He was a former board member of the Sycamore Valley Homeowners Association, Danville, CA; Fantasy Football League and he loved to hunt in Northern California with friends and bagged a deer one year.
In his memory the family asks that you heal all your family relationships and extend love to everyone you meet.

He IS still a Soul. The Soul never dies. His body is gone. He is free of its problems.
His Soul was born into a body, into the world of form where it learned the lessons of time.
The body is a shell that houses the Soul for a while. We will all leave the body one day.
“I am not a body. I am free for I am still as God Created me.”
ACIM Workbook: Lessons 201 to 220
The body is endangered by the mind that hurts itself.
We are a Decision Making Mind. Find that within and Peace is Realized.
