At that time Tina was a paralegal. They moved to Sun Lakes, AZ. They both enjoyed the weather and life style and made many new friends. His real passion of tennis finally took priority and he along with Don Neu, who passed earlier, gave free tennis lessons for over 20 years. He found real joy in turning a person who never played tennis into a tournament player. He was a great teacher and and avid player. he was hard to beat on the courts. He was well liked by everyone and his students really appreciated him. He was a great teacher.
