He was a member of the Elks in Ohio and in Meadville, and in the past he was an avid golfer, and enjoyed scuba diving and Lake Erie boating. His children and grandchildren meant the world to him. He was a very devoted and loving grandfather who avidly supported and attended many of their extra-curricular activities that each were involved in.

He was a forever fan of the Cleveland Browns and Indians, and in his spare time, thoroughly enjoyed discussing past and present games with his friends.
