He loved to spend his time fishing, hunting & watching his children, and later two of his grandsons, race motocross at various tracks on the west coast. He also enjoyed working on anything with an engine and was definitely the handyman of the family. He enjoyed watching old western movies and spending as much time as possible with his wife, children and grandchildren. He had a great sense of humor and although he may not have talked a lot, when he did we listened because it was usually something very important or really funny.
