He loved cigars, butter pecan ice cream and watching the birds, trees and flowers while wearing his ragged old brown coat he bought at Sears for $5 back in the day. In his youth he enjoyed his terrier dog Duke, studied history, ran track and loved building and reading about model airplanes among many other interests.
