Junior was a loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, son, brother, and friend. He grew up being an elite athlete and passed on his love for sports to his children, grandchildren, and many of the children growing up in the Village of Loggieville.

He was a teammate and coach to many on various hockey, softball, baseball and bowling teams and he served as Mayor and councilor of the Village of Loggieville for 24 years.
