He spent the rest of his days gardening, making corny jokes, playing crossword puzzles and games, going out to lunch, spending quality time with old friends and family. He enjoyed spending the weekends with my mother and puppy, going to the Berlin Farmers Market, and pampering his four-legged, furball kitten grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He was a past President of the Oaklyn, Lions Club. And a life member of the Oaklyn Fire Department.
My father was a kind man beloved by many.
