He was a long standing member of the Spanish American Club, the American Legion, the VFW and the Eagles Club. Fatty was a USPS Mail Carrier for thirty years. Fatty loved all sports and played many. He was a member of a travel soccer team and was an accomplished golfer. Fatty was inducted into the Canton Amateur Hall of Fame for Fumbleball, Softball and Basketball. He regularly attended the McKinley/Massillon football games and cheered with gusto for his favorite players. Fatty will best be remembered for his kind heart and his effervescent sense of fun and humor. He was never without the twinkle in his eye which meant mischief and a good laugh were at hand. He never left a room without making a friend. Fatty was a loyal and faithful man to his wife, his family, his friends, his heritage and his country.
