His hobbies were photography, scuba diving and travel. He enjoyed dancing,
Camping, and visiting the National Parks of America.
In 1988 he married Mary-White Heath Foster. They shared the same interests and
spent 20 years traveling ( in a motor home) enjoying the National Parks and
many other regions of the lower 48.
