He was considered a rock in both his and his wife’s families, while retaining a fiercely competitive streak for the standing dominoes game with his older brothers. He also greatly enjoyed working on his yard, always striving, and usually succeeding in maintaining the greenest lawn on the block and flowerbeds that were the pride of the neighborhood.
