Cherokee had many friends that were family to him. He was a man who would do anything for the ones he loved. To know him was to truly love him…. With all his flaws, mistakes and quirky imperfections, he was Golden to us and “Worth more than a dollar two ninety eight”
He Loved to hunt, fish the outdoors… he always smelled of campfire and river water. He was a master gunsmith and knife maker who enjoyed teaching his skills to many through out his years. I am sure his spirit will carry on in the lives of those he touched. Many things he taught are the life skills that will never be forgotten. His energy Lives on in all that he ever did, it is not gone and will not fade.
