Almon was a “tinkerer”, he would rather have a garage full of parts and pieces than to drive away in something new. He was also a man who loved having an audience; he was known for playing his guitar and singing for anyone there to listen.
To say that Almon enjoyed fishing would be an understatement; in a way, it was part of who Almon was. Fishing was one of the many things in his life that brought him peace and joy. But above all else, Almon loved and admired his family; especially his main man, Zach.
