He was a member of the Corvette Club for many years. He also dearly loved the beaches on Dauphin Island, AL. He spent his retirement days going to estate sales, watching car restorations and auctions on TV, reading, feeding the birds and sometimes eating good barbeque or Mexican food. He hated yard work. Spinal arthritis had kept him less active for several years.
