He loved listening to all genres of music especially country music from the 80s and 90s. He loved the 50s-90s sitcoms, present-day crime and drama shows, Madea movies, WWE Wrestling, Mountain Dew, and VT Football, but most of all he loved to decorate and cook for Christmas. He will truly be missed by all who were close to him including his precious “Ging” (Ginger) and “Pep” (Pepper). Also new fur baby, Sugar.
