Nef loved being immersed in nature. He was a master carpenter, but was really a jack of all trades. He was the kind of man to always offer the shirt off his back. Nef found his happiest moments with family and friends. He was a loving father, brother, and son. He'll always be remembered as a man of many strengths, with great potential. Some of his favorite sayings being, "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger," and "When there's a will, there's a way."
