He was a very likeable man that would help anyone if he was able. While overseas, he became an avid golfer. When back in Louisiana, he did play golf, but spent time bass fishing in Toledo Bend. The last few years he spent his time camping in his RV and at the hunting camp in Tensas National Wildlife Refuge with Jenny and their dog, Zoie. He will be deeply missed.
