In fact, most of his life centered around coaching his children in baseball and swimming. A proud grandfather to Maddex and Kai, his grandsons brought him joy and comfort. He loved to travel with his family, try new restaurants, and have fun. He was a jokester who would also lend a helping hand to anyone in need.
