There wasn't a song he didn't like or a beat he could pass up. He loved dancing. He danced with everyone but nothing he loved more than dancing with his wife. He was an avid golfer in his younger years but could see him on the course at Majestic Hills when he had the time. He loved a good sci-fi book, movies and television on his free time at home. His biggest love in life were his family and friends and with him there was no line between the two.
