Most recently, he helped his mother and grandmother relocate into their new home. He was part of the construction crew that rebuilt the old Oak Island Bridge. His memory will live on every time we cross that bridge.

He was particularly fond of cooking and never let a good or bad leftover go to waste. While staying with his sister Holly and family, he kept her chaotic life organized. He would cook, clean, fold laundry, feed the animals and all the various odd jobs that Holly didn’t have time to complete.
