In his later years he enjoyed going to the casinos, watching Women’s softball on Saturday, and watching the Cowboys play on Sundays. He also enjoyed watching baseball, especially the Houston Astros. He made sure to attend all of his kids and grandchildren’s sporting events because they were his favorite players.
