He enjoyed softball. He played first base on several leagues through the years. He was our "Babe Ruth." He was a true fisherman at heart and also enjoyed mushrooming. He would do anything for anyone, he had a heart of gold and only saw the good in people. He was a "unique individual." He did it his way!
