In recent past years he had attended the Wintersville Church of the Nazarene prior to moving to Arizona.

He loved his God, Country, family, and his many friends. He was always ready to help anyone in need.

He enjoyed watching NASCAR (Jeff Gordon), W.W.F Wrestling, playing cards and horseshoes, bowling, listening to gospel music, and following his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren’s activities.
