He and his wife of 68 years, Margaret, lived at their home "Fairacre" in Wethersfield for 60 years. A man of immense love, integrity, and devotion, he lived every moment to its fullest and best.

He was devoted to his family, advocated for teachers, education and civil rights, saved whales, pioneered innovative home movies, inspired multitudes, and followed his bliss. A lifelong amateur movie producer, his family film "Disneyland Dream" was selected in 2009 by the National Library of Congress for its permanent collection.
