He worked and retired from Lakeshore Thermatru. He enjoyed his spending time with his family, working in his yard, riding his bike down to City Park, listening to music and watching movies at the same time. He had a good eye for collecting items that were antique and or different. He will be truly missed by his loved ones.
My dad was a truly great guy and one of a kind and he will truly be missed by his children and friends. He was a dreamer, inventor and a handyman and constantly fixed stuff for his daughters. He loved to laugh and use one of his many sayings but the most used in all situations was “everybody gets a turn.”
