A life-long resident of the East Bay, he raised a family of five children – Gail, Michael, Lynn, Dave and Steve, eleven grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. Despite his busy schedule, he always made time for fishing and hunting trips with the children as well as family vacations and road trips in the Delta and on the Coast. He loved his vacations in Europe, the Orient and areas around the country.
