  1. He was an active member of the Hammondsport Legion for many years. Was also part of the crew that built the Legion on 54. He loved his family including his four legged companions. Marched for many years in the Color Guard. He enjoyed watching the birds ,squirrels ,and any other critter that happened to wander in his yard.
