He grew up in Clinton and worked at several factories throughout the years. He enjoyed fishing, playing his guitar and spending time with family. He loved animals, especially his cat, Skitz and his bird, Sam. As a boy, he played third base in the Clinton Little Leagues All Star game. As a result, he became an avid Chicago Cubs fan and never missed a game.
