Over the nineteen years in Margate he enjoyed perfecting his organ playing skills, working on his tan at the beach, antiquing and going to auctions. Always on the hunt for that hidden gem and selling it on eBay.
A very special thank you is extended to the Vitas staff for their loving care and support in his final days. A celebration of life service date is to be determined, as it will be held in East Aurora, NY.
