Where he was able to get paid to watch his favorite sports.
He was a member of Denton Bible Church and was involved in the men’s group there. He loved adventure and pushing the limits. Some of his favorite past times were fishing, golf, softball (he even played into his 70s), going to the nature center, and spending time at the marina in Lake Worth. But his absolute favorite times were spent playing barbies with his granddaughter, fishing with his grandsons, and playing any sport with all of them. He was extremely passionate about teaching his grandchildren everything he could about life. He will be remembered for his sense of humor, contagious laugh, and treating everyone like he had known them for years. But most of all he will be remembered for how much he loved the Lord and wanted others to know his Lord and Savior as well.
