His grandchildren and great grandchildren were his pride and joy. He enjoyed making sure his lawn always looked amazing, cooking and grilling enough to feed a small army, and never passing up the opportunity to buy a “new” gadget. In May of this year, he was honored and proud to take the Freedom Flight to Washington DC along with his brother Adry and his nephew Scott.
