He was a supervisor in the Pack/Ship department. After having had cancer back in 1976, and beat it, he made a promise to God that he would help anyone, anyway he could, who was going through the same thing.

Through the years he enjoyed camping, fishing, hunting, boating and golf. He was an avid NASCAR fan, he loved watching sports on television, reading and word seek puzzles. He enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren and last but not least - his two little Yorkies, KoKo and Miss Kloie.
