For a number of years he generously donated his artwork to local organizations to help raise funds, including Hospice of Lancaster, Schreiber Pediatric, Leo’s Helping Paws and others.
He was fond of travel. Together with his spouse and life partner, they traveled extensively in the Caribbean and throughout Europe.
