They were very exciting times for all of us. He and Lois retired to their farm in Lynchburg, Ohio where he was able to fulfill a life-long dream of gardening and farming. His many hobbies included motorcycle riding, Model T driving, Formula Ford car racing, traveling to bluegrass festivals and American history. He loved all things mechanical and could build and fix anything.
