He was an avid Toronto Maple Leafs and Toronto Blue Jays fan, who rarely missed a game and never missed the highlights. In his younger years he played for the Noel Road Braves, later he played for the Old Timers. He loved country music and he and Lois rarely missed a dance on a Friday or Saturday night.
