The Inspiration behind BW
He was a true craftsman who took deep pride in his work, possessed a desire to always go the extra mile, was firmly grounded (steady and unyielding) in his faith, and had a true love for his family. He loved spending time working on projects together, sharing in the special memories and making sure the work days were never dull and full of silly moments! He was an avid collector of tools and parts from years gone by, especially pieces that reflect the working man’s history and early American grit and ingenuity. In his last few years, he became passionate about blacksmithing and even built a working blacksmith shop that was his pride and joy. Unfortunately, he passed away before being able to really start working on his blacksmith projects after being diagnosed with cancer. His passing has driven us to carry on his legacy, share with others all of the values he so diligently impressed upon us, and given us a desire (eagerness and commitment) to lend a helping hand to those fighting cancer and their families.
