After retirement, he enjoyed foreign travel, especially time spent in Paris, Venice, and the coast of Spain. He also enjoyed foreign languages and studied Italian, Japanese, French, and German. However, his favorite spot in the world was Moonstone Beach, and he remodeled several homes in the area to complement the natural surroundings.
