He loved gardening, working on motorcycles, and enjoying the outdoors with activities such as camping and fishing. He was not above fun and was known as a prankster. He loved his OU Sooners. The only thing that overshadowed his love for the crimson a crème was his intense dislike for The Dallas Cowboys.
