He enjoyed playing volleyball in a local club, watching Bills games, was amazing at Jeopardy, and had great taste in music. One of his greatest qualities was his open mind and heart. He also really loved his dogs, Oscar, Stella, and Rosie. No prior visitation. A Memorial Service will be held at the convenience of the family.
