He took pride in giving advice to all his friends but especially to his younger family members. He loved gadgets, cars, motorcycles, fixing things, and adult beverages. He loved sports, especially the Virginia Tech Hokies and the Washington Redskins. However, he most loved spending time with his friends and family.
