He was very proud of attaining the coveted hole in one. He was a bugle and trumpet player, beginning during his scouting years, where he rose to Eagle Scout. He was one of the world’s biggest Neil Diamond fans, exposing his family to hour after hour of his music on long car rides and family trips. 

He leaves behind his two daughters, Amy Svec (J.C. Svec) and Lisa Schulte (Rick Goralnick) and two adored grandchildren, Dakota Svec and Matthew Goralnick.
