After retirement, he grew his beard out, loved to ride his trike, visit the property he and his son bought and spend time with his family and dogs.

During the holiday season, he enjoyed dressing up in his Santa suit and hat to take pictures with the grandkids and family. While teaching, he even used the “naughty” or “nice” sides of his Santa hat to give bonus points to his students before the midterms.
