He loved playing dominoes on a Friday night and of course beating the girls. He also loved hiking around here, camping and traveling all over the US and England and Australia. His last vacation was to the Grand Canyon to ride the mules to the bottom, spend the night and ride back up the next day with 6 of our friends! Then we found out he had lung cancer. He fought almost a year long battle with chemo and radiation treatments. Everybody loved to listen to him talk because of his adorable tales, sense of humor and his accent.
