Display it at car shows. He was a part of the Model T club in Tacoma.

He named them Cheepee 1, Cheepee 2 and Cheepee 3.
He married to Shirley B. Lorenz over 51 years ago. He missed her so much since
She passed away in 2011. He loved his family and friends and enjoyed having groups
of people over for BBQ's and gatherings. Everyone was made to feel welcome.
He never turned down an invitation for a meal or social activity.
A Seahawk fan from the beginning. He was so proud when they won the Super bowl!
He will be greatly missed.
