Dakota loves to go ride his ATV, his bicycle, and he is a big NASCAR fan. His favorite NASCAR drivers were Earnhardt Jr. and Sr. He loves to go bowling and go to Illini Skateland to go skating. He is a big joker and loves everybody the same. He makes a good impact on everyone.
A very special thanks to Kevin Gambert for everything he did for our family.
