Researching his family on Ancestry listening to all kinds of music, playing chess online, reading the news online at 5AM each morning.. He enjoyed staying in in touch with family by e mail and pictures watching the little ones grow up.
He stayed up to date with current technology, rebuilt many computers to see how they worked as he was a curious soul to the end. He was homebound but not alone and never never complained about his condition.
