His leisure pursuits included enjoying his grandchildren, tennis, golf, SCUBA diving, fishing, and horticulture. He was a source of inspiration for his family, siblings, and friends, as he always found the good in people and, by example, demonstrated all that could be accomplished with a positive attitude.
