He and his family love to travel. Recently his most memorable trip was an African safari to Tanzania and Kenya. A truly unique experience to see animals and the environment interact. He and his wife have been actively involved in Greyhound rescue for many years.
Relaxation includes watching many of our local sport teams, and when time allows, playing golf and adding travel to golf, making the game that much more exciting.
