They loved to play racket ball, tennis, and golf together and were long time members at Canyon Crest Country Club and Andulka Tennis Park. Together they traveled all over the world, but they especially loved being near the beach. They also enjoyed cooking, dancing, taking long walks, and entertaining family and friends at home.
