He retired from the State of Michigan as Nurse Manager at the Duane L Waters Hospital, and worked many years as a Registered Nurse at U of M Hospital (now Michigan Medicine). He loved living on Center Lake, and his contagious laugh could make you smile from a mile away. His favorite times were spent with friends and family, having a good time & sharing a cold one. He was a member of the Center 3 Horse Club since 1995, and took great pride in winning the annual 3 Horse Race several times. And he wouldn’t want you to forget, he is the reigning champion this year. He was also a loyal fan of the Michigan Wolverines, enjoyed target shooting, and was a life member of the NRA.
