He enjoyed watching the Minnesota Twins and Vikings teams, hunting, taking naps in his chair, International Harvester, and tractor memorabilia.  He shared his enthusiasm for sports with his son by coaching him in baseball for many years.

I am sorry to hear of Jon’s passing. When Jon was in Clark I played on the same softball team with him. I recall the last time I saw Jon. He was driving one of his tractors in a parade. Thoughts and prayers are with your family.
