Quinton was known as a “Country Boy” in life, he loved anything outdoors and loved to wrestle and play with almost any type of farm animal. He always loved to go fishing with Zak and Travis, you never knew what crazy things would happen with the three of them together.
Being surrounded with family was always very important to Quinton and he thought the world of his nephew, Caleb, he would do anything for his little buddy.
Quinton loved a good political debate, now he might not always have the correct facts to back his thoughts up, but he could always put up a good argument, just because he loved to challenge people. As far as a jokester he could be known to pull a good prank or tell a tale or two.
Some of his favorite things to do were to cut and split wood with his dad and play video games. He was even making plans to go Sky Diving.
