They raised their loving family together in Indian Lake where they were members of the Indian Lake Community Club. There they would relax on the beach, enjoy the lake, and participate in all the traditions and functions held at the clubhouse. He loved to fish in the local lakes and ponds of his community, he also loved gardening, being well known for his 14-foot sunflowers that adorned his front yard, as well as the 65 birdhouses that can be seen throughout his yard.
