He loved bow hunting, target practice, hunting, RC racing, shooting skeet and clay pigeons, loading shells and helping people.

His greatest passion was his family, especially his daughter, nieces and nephews. He was especially proud of each of them for their special abilities and the kindness they showed to others.
