Married to his High School sweetheart for 41 Years, but together for 47, there was rarely anything they ever did apart. They loved to travel and spend time with his dear friends. Whether it was “Lake Life”, relaxing in Florida, fishing with the grandkids, weekly get togethers, family Sunday’s or hanging with High School friends, they never missed a party. As an avid sports fan he enjoyed all Cincinnati sports, especially the Reds. He was the most giving, generous and unselfish person with biggest the heart and he always enjoyed life to fullest.

His wife and family were always his #1. One of his favorite past times, which he considered a hobby, was spending time with his grandkids. He was looking forward to retirement come January 1, unfortunately he was taken too soon.
