In his later years, he golfed and bowled, participating in various leagues with his wife and other members of his family. He loved listening to music, watching sports, and reporting to his daughters about the hummingbirds at his feeders. For many years, he tended bar at the former Italian Club in Derry and he held memberships in the Slovak and Greek Clubs.
