Tristan also had a hidden talent of art and could draw anything he put his mind to.
Tristan loved to visit and help out at his Grandpa Chuck's hotel. Grandpa Chuck was his hero until the very end. During Frontier Days, Tristan would hit the streets with his brothers selling soda and chips. He also loved to visit and spend time with his many aunts, uncles, and cousins at his Grandpa Harold's famous barbeques and Easter egg hunts. Many Christmases were spent there also. Tristan was especially close to his brothers and they shared many good times together. Tristan had an infectious smile and touched the lives of many people.
