Whenhe wasn't tinkering in the garage he tinkered in the kitchen - cooking showsand recipes - always trying new things. He was a die-hard Cubs fan until the end (even criticizing Joe Maddon’s moves in his final days).He was self-sacrificing, always helping people as much as he could.He was a giver.
