He loved playing with his friends and family trivia, games, Yahtzee, corn hole and any games he could. He was very competitive. He loved discussing the military, and attending the Blue Angels and Thunderbird Air Shows. He also was part of a huge military family on both sides. He enjoyed going to his Sister-in-Laws apple orchard and also to Crystal Lake which are both located in New Hampshire. It always reminded him of being home in Arkansas. He also enjoyed building model airplanes and tanks and watching airplanes take off and land at Logan Airport and could tell you what type of plane it was as well.
