He was a Christian family man and loved everything he had. He had a good sense of humor, joking and telling stories and pranking his kids and grandkids doing things like sticking his dirty socks in their face and asking how many more times he could wear them. While living in Maine, he was a big clammer. He was extremely generous and was known for his work ethic. He enjoyed growing roses and sharing the cuttings from his roses and he also enjoyed his Frangipani tree. He was faithful to watch the Weather Channel and loved his Little Debbie snack cakes.
