He loved more than anything spending time with his daughters, Courtney and Casey, always attending any school event they were involved in and helping them fix any problem they had. He also enjoyed playing the drums, caring for his beloved cat, Rosco, watching sci-fi movies and documentaries, and tinkering with any broken parts he could find.
He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Emil and Gertrude Veselka, Sr.
