They also went on to Hamburg as the first International Team to compete in Germany since WWII, where they won all 3 races and came home to a great celebration and banquet. His hobbies included exercising, running, playing golf and fishing. He was a man of God who attended St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in Whiting, where he led Bible studies and served as a member of the vestry. He was predeceased by his wife Mary in 2012.
