He had many loves, Jack on the rocks, casinos and golf. He was a member of the Lenawee Country Club and enjoyed playing in tournaments. His love of the golf course made him the perfect groundskeeper in a few of his retirement years. But his greatest joy was his love of his family, especially his grandchildren.
