He was an avid sports fan. He loved the Atlanta Braves, but his favorite teams were the ones his nieces were on. He was generous and kind to everyone and always gave more than he took.  His friends and family knew that they could call on him for anything, even when the task wasn’t one of his specialties, he would find a way to help.  He always wanted to be someone that everyone wanted to trade favors with, and that he was.
