Wimpy was a friend to all. He never met a stranger throughout his life. He possessed the gift of seeing the best in people. He paired his accepting personality with knowledge and wisdom that he was quick to share with anyone. Looking for opportunities to love and help others came naturally to him. He never turned down someone in need. His passion for people also carried into his hobbies. Garage sales and flea markets were the highlight of his Sunday's. Other hobbies included collecting rocks, marbles, cameras, music players, and antique cars. However, he valued family more than anything, because he had family everywhere, he never felt far from home. Quality time with family included listening to his grandchildren sing, going to their sports events, and admiring their art. Nothing brought Wimpy more joy than his family.
