Dad loved spending time with his family traveling and spending many weekends in Havasu boating and water skiing. He loved playing golf and bridge with their close group of friends. Dad was a very generous and loving man who believed in a strong work ethic and education. Dad will be deeply missed by his family and friends! But we are comforted knowing that Mom and Dad are together again. Per Dad's request there will be no service held. Donations in his name may be made to AFROTC Detachment 040 1 LMU Dr. Suite 3100 Los Angeles, Ca 90045
