He loved to travel, and traveled over a million miles, including two cross-country trips by car to California with his family in 1963, and another one to Baja California Norte in 2005. With his wife, Sue, he traveled with Club International. They also traveled to Europe, including trips behind the Iron Curtain, Yugoslavia and Greece, and Hawaii.
