A great jokester, storyteller, and sometimes exaggerator his tales of successes and follies have been passed down two generations and are sure to continue. Living his life on the coast of Maine it’s no surprise that he loved boating, camping, and seafood but also simply reading the news paper in his recliner at the end of every day.
