A.D. was a hydraulic diesel mechanic for Central Texas Equipment for approximately 35 years and worked all over the country. He had a passion for rebuilding engines, tractors, and trucks. He loved to fiddle with broken machines and parts. He always made sure his family was well taken care of, fed, and having a good time. He loved spending time with his family and making new rides for his grandkids to enjoy. They especially enjoyed the tractor swing he created for them. He loved to play his guitar, fish, and hunt. A.D. was a lover of music and dancing and made sure to spin his wife around the dance floor as often as possible. He always made sure to shower her with gifts, flowers, and kisses. Mary Helen would like everyone to know what a wonderful man, husband, and loving father he was. He will be missed dearly.

The family would like to thank Compassus Hospice Nurses that provided exceptional comfort care in the last days of his life and guided the family through this difficult time.
