Aside from his love of sports he also enjoyed camping in the Uinta Mountains and Southern Utah as well as traveling. Before his passing he travelled to Italy and toured Europe, which he considered experiences of a lifetime. One of his greatest joys was spending time with his grandchildren: Lennon, McCartney, Harrison and Harper.
He believed in hard work, often working multiple jobs to put himself through college and to provide for his family.
