The fact that he could make anyone feel that he had known them all his life and his warmth and enthusiasm made people look forward to seeing him as they entered the store!

He was a big Atlanta Braves fan and enjoyed watching them play! In his spare time he loved tinkering on cars. His family was always utmost in his thoughts, especially his grandchildren.
