He believes in family, faith in God, and hard work. He currently enjoys watching the Orioles on television, listening to Bible programs and visiting with family.

Dad's life of hard work has benefited him in his golden years; he is mentally sharp and physically strong.

We are hopeful that his good genes will be passed down to us.
