He always wanted his kids to have everything they wanted so that they wouldn’t have to live the way he did growing up and because of this, he always made sure they were very well taken care of. His hobbies included working on old cars, and taking his family camping and fishing. Allen and Brenda were also very well known for the parties they hosted in the big shop he had built in the back of their home.
