He was considered a movie guru and had an impressive collection of movies at home. He was proud to become a grandfather in 2018. He loved his dog Bentley, and he was known for always wearing sunglasses. Since 2006, he battled from Wegner's GPA Auto Immune Disease, but never let that stop him from being the social bee that he was, as he was always happy everyone knew him by name. Most of all, despite his hardships with his ailments, he always thought about everyone else first. He was very caring, and always took care of others in need. He will be deeply missed by all of his friends and family.
