He enjoyed fishing, golfing and planning "Grinchmas." Anyone who knew Dad, knew he was a "merry prankster" with a tireless sense of humor. He always said "I've had three wives who were great housekeepers...they all kept the house."

Thanks to the team at Inspiration Hospice who took wonderful care of our dad and were a great support to us all.
We'll miss you dearly. "See ya on the 19th hole."
