He enjoyed playing basketball in high school and after graduating from the last class of “Guilford High School” in 1949, he even played for several years with semi-pro leagues.
As a young man he enjoyed hunting and fishing. Along with his wife, Pat, he enjoyed traveling and covered most of the continental United States, as well as Alaska, Hawaii, Austria, Germany, Italy, and Canada. But, he always enjoyed coming back to his farm.
