His life was filled with adventures including many enjoyable camping trips starting out with a tent and outdoor cooking with family up to traveling to almost of the states in a large modern motor home with Margot, his wife of 67 years and meeting many fellow campers along the way who became life-long friends.
He was a member of the Nassau Sportsman’s Club, winning many top awards in local pistol tournaments and serving as safety instructor for the club. Other hobbies included working on restoring an old MGA automobile, dabbling in CB radio, photography, and constructing a model railroad empire in the basement of the same house he built in 1955.
