He enjoyed gardening and woodworking in his spare time but most of all, spending time with his four children and many grandchildren. Rich or “scooby” as he was known, had recently retired in July of 2017. Although his retirement was short   he was the happiest he had ever been and was finally able to “enjoy himself” as he put it.
