He joined the United States Army and served our Country from 1951 until 1953 during the Korean War, and was stationed in Germany. He loved his Country and flag and was very patriotic.

He enjoyed spending his winter months in Florida and his summers at Barton Lake. He also loved the outdoors. His advice about turning 90 was to always keep moving. He was very proud of his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. In his younger years his hobbies included playing softball, horseshoes, C.B. and Ham radios, tinkering with electronics, going to the gun range, and playing pool. As he grew older, he enjoyed playing Bingo, taking road trips to FireKeepers, and even learned how to play cornhole. He could make friends anywhere he went, he was a people person, and his nickname was the GOV. He will always be an Icon in Fremont.

All of the stories my dad told of his early life and school years involved your dad in one way or another. Usually they were funny and mischievous. Dad will grin just seeing him arrive in heaven.
Sorry for your loss of your dad.
