In his spare time, he enjoyed woodworking, golfing, fishing, wintering in Florida, going to breakfast every day after he retired and traveling in his motor home with Ruth throughout the United States.

Survivors include: his daughters, Priscilla Hreha and her husband David, Titusville, Fla.; Glenda J. Reinhart, Masury; Joyce Tice and her husband Gary, Naples, Fla.; and Andrea Herzberger and her husband Kurt, Masury; his sister, Dorothy Bombeck, Brookfield; and his nine grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren and five great-great-grandchildren.
