He loved sports, chess, cooking, his children and grandchildren and above all – he loved the Lord. There was a time where he had challenges with addiction but he became sober and gave his life to Christ over 26 years ago. He was a devoted member of Shepherd’s Heart church in Pittsburgh, PA. He had empathy and compassion for those individuals that were having hardships with addiction and homelessness and often ministered to them because he wanted those individuals to be delivered as well.
