He had extravagant taste from his coffee and cigars to the thread count of his sheets. He passed on his love of art to his grandchildren, encouraged them and was their biggest fan. He was a stubborn force to be reckoned with; An advocate for being the best you can, a voice of reason, and a confidant. In his final days he accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior.
