His passion was classic cars, of which he fixed up and enjoyed many in his lifetime. His biggest priority in life was always his family. He leaves behind his wife of 34 years, Mary. She will always be his one, true love. He also leaves behind two daughters, Heather and Rachel; a stepson, Jason; two son-in-laws, Willy and Mathew); four granddaughters, Reagan, Finley, Sadie, and Piper; and his older brother, Rick.
