He was actively involved in the Boy Scouts of America, encouraging his sons and grandsons to follow the scouting tradition. He was proud of his country, his state, his university, but most of all, he was proud of his family. He loved each child and grandchild unconditionally and delighted in everything they did. He supported them in all their endeavors. He worked hard, provided well for his family, and instilled in them values for a lifetime. Everyone who met him loved him.
