In 1964, he married Marion and started a family. He shared his love of reading, learning and knowledge with anyone who cared to listen. His support and love for all those around him was so comforting. His deep, genuine laugh – unforgettable. He was loved by all who had the pleasure to know him and will be dearly missed.
