They spent half the year in Florida and half on Cape Cod. He loved going for walks with his dog Maggie who would always be by his side. He was the life of family gatherings, had a great sense of humor and with his great smile and sparkling blue eyes, he could melt your heart. He was much loved and will surely be missed.
