He was a very religious man, who read the bible all the way through and believed in God. He loved his family very much, helping to take care of his loving mother and seeing to her needs. He was a well-read, intelligent man who was very active in life, always on the go doing what he loved, such as hunting, fishing, swimming, and sharing in his son's passion for playing baseball. He attended every one of his son's games, from pony, colt, little league and High School, even helping coach on occasion. In his son's words, “he was the best coach a son could want.” He loved spending summers with his family at his parent's cabin on the Cedar River where he enjoyed sitting around the campfire and also hunting with Tom, Gregg, David, and Shaun. Aside from being an avid Hawkeye, St. Louis Cardinal, and Chicago Bears fan, he was a Cub Scout and a Boy Scout.
