According to the family, he was an avid golfer with a vivacious personality. He realized something was wrong when his playing partners started out driving him. He was diagnosed less than a year into retirement.
For the past 13 years, the family has raised money for ALS research through the annual walk and a memorial golf tournament. The goal each year is to raise at least $2,000.
