    My farther was a good man and also a funny one. Tough on the outside, but loving on the inside. He loved me very much and he expressed that to me all the time. Always willing to help or give advice. He was also adventurous and loved to try new things or go places. Which I believe I got the adventurous spirit from. He was also a trucker, and a biker. So life was a highway to him. Living life as chill as he can be and letting the troubles roll off his back. He will be deeply missed, but never forgotten, and always loved. - His son, Travis Mills
