He loved hanging out with family and friends, his dry sense of humor and quick responses left you laughing all the time. "You think you know but you don't" was his favorite saying and some of his favorite things were crafting cribbage/checker tables, going to the beach so he could listen to the ocean waves, casinos and camping.

He will be missed by everyone who knew him.
