He proudly served in the United States Army from 1956 retiring in 1979. His joy in life was his family, playing water volleyball at 86, making MVP every Sunday, going to the Casinos to “donate” his money and working in his yard. He never met a stranger and his grandkid's friends came to refer to him as “Grandpa”. He loved to travel when he could and just enjoy life. He will be greatly missed but never forgotten.
