He always puts other people  rst. He can put a smile on anyone's face. He would start a conversation with anyone. As for hobbies, he has lots. He would go  shing and race pigeons. His favorite one was singing Frank Sinatra's song, “My Way!” in karaoke sessions. His on-circuit name was Mr. P. Everyone knew him as that. He was a U.S. Navy veteran. He served in the Korean War. He worked as an electrician for Kansas City. He helped build projects like Worlds of Fun, the Kansas City International Airport, and Liberty Hospital. He has  ve grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. One of the things he is great at was writing down his thoughts as poems. He would teach his two sons to hunt and  sh.
