“Pops” was a hard working man right until the end. He could fix or make almost anything. He used to love to travel with Beth in his big yellow bus that he rebuilt. He loved his Tuesday night golf and went quadding with his daughters on several occasions. His annual trip to the Ritchie Bros. auctions with his sons was a highlight along with the family reunions held in Princeton and trips to the Cayman Islands to visit his sons.
