A child of the Eastern Shore, he was an avid hunter and fisher, ever on the pursuit of fins and furs. Captain of his boat the “Whale Tale,” he was happiest “˜putzing’ on projects at home and beach property in Tuckahoe Acres. As an Air Force Veteran, Constable of 35 years at Christiana Hospital, and life time NRA member and instructor, he preached safety and balancing perspectives within any situation.
Never losing his thirst for adventure, he enjoyed cruising and making good time on long drives. In the past year, he drove cross country solo on Route 66 from it’s beginning in Chicago to the Santa Monica Pier in California. He will be remembered for his willingness to help others, see the best in people, and unique sense of humor.
