He loved to hunt, fish and was a rock hound, he wore out several tires transporting rocks back to Oklahoma, and they were active members in the Antique Car Club for many years. They held ‘Jammin’ sessions every Wednesday for years, at the public library in the neighborhood where everybody welcomed singing and playing instruments.
