This cherished human was a brilliant physician who was awarded the bronze star for his service in Vietnam and subsequently had a long and productive career as an internal medicine and cardiology physician at Kaiser Ohio Permanente medical group in Cleveland Ohio. After retiring in 1998 he moved to California and spent time teaching the UCLA doctoring course, volunteering at the discovery science Center, and enjoying his passions of windsurfing and skiing. During these Golden Years he found his true calling in life as a full time Grandpa. In this role he flourished and delighted on every word uttered by his adoring grandkids while living the happiest years of his life. Please celebrate his life by relishing the abundant wonder and joy of children.
