He remained the great father, grandfather, brother and friend he had always been and made sure his relationships remained strong and unbroken. Despite his faltering health he anxiously awaited Wednesday nights when he would have dinner with his old friends he proudly dubbed “the Romeos” (retired old men eating out.)
