He enjoyed spending time with his family and friends.
He was an amazing father, grandfather, husband, brother, friend, marine. He was lovingly called “Pop Pop”. He was thee best father and “Pop Pop” anyone could ever ask for. He was known for his tremendous grit, strength, integrity, infectious smile, beautiful blue eyes, sense of humor, and genuine desire to do everything he could for others.
