He liked to fish, bowl, golf, and watch birds at their feeder. He played a mean game of Scrabble and was a big time Auburn football fan. He also liked to go for drives. He made some of the best steaks and roasts on his grill. He loved sweets and ice cream. He also loved to tell jokes.

He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather, and will be greatly missed.
