He enjoyed retirement with Doris by travelling the globe and residing in N Fort Myers, Florida during the winter months.  He loved to laugh and had many friends.  He enjoyed photography, art and camping.  His love of country music and line dancing allowed him to progress to several CMT appearances on Club Dance in Knoxville, TN.  He will be missed greatly!
