He enjoyed Sunday night cards with friends, family, grandchildren, and great grandchildren and hosting parties at their family pond where he could fish and visit with friends. The grandkids and great grandchildren all have fond memories of the story that grandpa used to tell them when they would ask him to tell a story. It went like this “One dark and stormy night three robbers were sitting on a log and one said Jack tell me a story and so Jack began… One dark and stormy night three robbers were sitting on a log and one said Jack tell me a story” and on and on it went as the kids yelled not that story grandpa and grandpa laughed.
