He was a generous person who never met a stranger and was a loyal friend going out of his way to help when he could. All those who knew him would point out his extraordinary sense of humor, his quick wit, and his extreme intelligence.  The motto he lived by was that he hoped that everyone he met, he could make their day a little bit better.
