His greatest joy was his daughter. He spent his time watching movies and putting legos together with her, having daddy/daughter date nights, and fishing. He was a life long Who Dat.

“ For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” – Romans 8:38-39
