His favorite past time was to take his boat out on Lake Erie and fish for perch. He also bowled for 20 plus years in the Lutheran Bowling League and golfed. He loved to watch all sports but he loved his Cleveland Indians baseball team. But most of all, he loved his family and was a wonderful husband, father and grandfather.
