He made his home at Holiday Lake, and served on the Lake Board of Directors. He was an avid huntsman of deer, pheasant, turkey and enjoyed fishing too. He enjoyed grilling and cooking for his family and the guys during deer camp. He liked karaoke, singing, dancing and entertaining dear friends with jokes and southern analogies or "Philisms".
