He was an avid sailor, and took several long voyages on his beloved sailboat "Auriga" to Newfoundland and Bermuda, among other destinations. He especially loved skiing and golf, and he proudly taught all of his grandchildren how to ski. He loved to travel with his family. On one recent trip to Scotland, he impressively scored a 78, with 2 birdies, on one of Scotland's tough courses. He accomplished this at the "young" age of 82 years.
