He was a veteran of the Navy and was a bosun-mate on the Skylark. He loved his career as a shoe hand sewer. He was an avid boxing fan and collected numerous boxing memorabilia, especially those of Muhammad Ali. Antique cars were another hobby. To him the best compliment to one of his antique cars was a horn blow and a thumbs up from an anonymous passerby. He also loved to go to antique car shows where he could talk about cars with other antique lovers. His favorite drink was Moxie and he was an avid reader. The Turtle was his spiritual animal. He loved his spirituality and was a devoted student of the Course in Miracles. He loved history, especially family and presidential history.
