He loved NECCO’s, Dad’s Root Beer Barrels, peanut brittle, Hershey’s chocolates and black licorice. Also, apple pie with ice cream, chicken noodle soup with crackers, chopped ham with Swiss cheese sandwiches using sandwich spread and topped off with a glass of milk. . He absolutely loved an old family favorite called “SLOP”. He bragged that he bought a new 1994 Ford F250 pickup, and it only had a little over 200,000 miles on it even though it gets on a good day 13 miles per gallon. He had all of the James Bond movies and he loved old classic TCM (Turner Classic Movies). He also loved music from the late 50’s to early 60’s. More than anything he loved his family first, and then the Moose. He would send each of the nine little girls in the WSNIMA/Idaho House a birthday card and $20. It truly made a difference in their lives. These children would send back the cutest thank you cards.
