He was a true renaissance man; enjoying a wide variety of disciplines such as writing, photography, poetry, and music composition, winning awards for each. He then began a second career in teaching intermediate school orchestra students and gave private lessons. He loved this part of his career life most of all.
All through his years he showed the love of his lord and savior, through music and in all of his every day activities. He feels this is the one thing that has brought him peace and acceptance. He wants to be known best as a child of God.
