He loved fishing and camping trips, golfing and bowling.  For over 20 years, his favorite place to meet friends for senior coffee and crosswords was McDonalds. Thank you, Liz!  He was a veteran of WW II and the Korean War, serving with the Merchant Marines and the US Army.  Funeral services will be held at 1:00 PM on Monday at the chapel in Mausoleum II at Calvary Cemetery, where Military Honors will be accorded.  Burial will follow in Calvary Cemetery.
