In his earlier years, he enjoyed bowling, fishing, and spending time in the mountains. He also enjoyed building yucca furniture, playing cards with his brothers, and hanging out with friends in Hagerman. He was an avid Artesia Bulldog and Dallas Cowboy fan and rarely missed a Bulldog football, basketball or baseball game.
