He continued working hard but always found time to be a wonderful husband and father. He loved hunting, fishing, golf, scuba diving, water sports, and traveling and he loved sharing these activities with his family. Throughout his life, he never lost his contagious laughter and sense of humor and continued to bring smiles to the faces of all who knew him.
