He sold his business and went to work for the Kingman Unified School District, driving a bus and working in maintenance. He loved working with kids. He worked in the community of Kingman witnessing to the homeless in the parks, and hospital. He ministered to the juvenile detention center bringing the gospel of Christ’s love. He and his Wife started “Feed my sheep Ministries where they spent their time feeding the less fortunate around the community. He preached in homes for the elderly and he enjoyed passing out a bible to any one he came across. He served God with all he had, loved people, preached the word of God where ever he could, including juveniles and several times at churches without a pastor filling in until the full time pastor arrived.
