Amos enjoyed hunting and especially target shooting. He loved the challenge of the sport and had a special way of reliving the “sacred” animal encounters. Amos took great pride in his family. Nothing held him back from helping his family or neighbors. He will be sadly missed at family gatherings. He was a man of few words, but when he spoke it was with great wisdom.
