SCUBA diving and feeding the squirrels are the first of many fond memories that come to mind, but so many more. He loved his family beyond measure. He was a hard-working, family man. What a wonderful legacy to leave behind! I enjoyed his cynical view of life & the world and a what a witty, sarcastic sense of humor he had. He will be greatly missed.
