He was assistant coach with the Little Bombers under 18 girls' soccer team. In 2002 he married Liz Harrison, and they had 21 wonderful years together. He was a volunteer at the International Golf Tournament at Castle Pines for 20 years and traveled to other clubs to share his knowledge of Marshalling. He also volunteered at the Colorado Open and tournaments at Cherry Hills CC and other clubs in the state. He met several very special friends through that activity. He had a printing business for his adult life and never retired because he wanted to continue to call on his friends. He was the consummate sports fan with season tickets to the Denver Broncos since the 60’s and also season ticket holder for the University of Colorado, The Colorado Avalanche, some seasons with the Denver Nuggets and Du Hockey. He loved having a Super Bowl party every year. He was a faithful attendee at DJ’s sports and the grandchildren’s sports and plays.

He will be deeply missed by all of us. May his spirit live forever!
