He was an avid woodworker, gardener, and skilled marksman, winning multiple shooting competitions during his younger years including the NC Class C State Championship in trap shooting. He loved hunting, fishing, and riding his grandkids around on his backhoe. His most treasured role was dad to his three children and Paw Paw to his four grandchildren and two great grandchildren.
