He loved fishing with his sons, going to all types of racing events, riding and working on motorcycles. Joe and Pat would travel to Daytona Bike week regularly for vacation. He also spent a lot of time on the family canoe out on the pond. He loved and cherished every moment he spent with his granddaughters.
