He spent countless hours playing golf with friends and family. He and his wife attended a multitude of his grandchildren’s activities ranging from sports, plays, musicals, church plays, and so much more. He served his county in the United States Army with honor. He was a former Lakewood Rod and Gun Club and lifetime NRA member. He was retired from Knox County Sheriff’s department. The majority of his career was in banking in New York and Florida. The things he enjoyed the most was when he and his wife dropped their convertible top and took evening drives, listening to Elvis, looking for deer, and enjoying each other.
