He spent his retirement years devoted to his granddaughters, taking them to and from countless ballet/dance classes and performances. He most enjoyed performing throughout the years with each of his granddaughters as Herr Drosselmeier in the 9th Ave School of Dance production of The Nutcracker. He will be remembered as a kind and devoted father, grandfather, bonus grandfather and friend by all who knew him. He was our rock and we will miss him.
