The last several years he had branched off on his own adventure buying and selling radio controlled cars and parts. He had a passion for old rock music, vintage cars, Nascar, was an avid Star Wars and Three Stooges fan and loved his two dogs.

He will be dearly missed and lovingly remembered by his wife of 18 years Florence, stepson Mitchell, a grand-daughter, parents Edward and Barbara Sourbeck of Cascade, sisters Catherine (Andrew) Dominguez of Arizona and Deborah Sourbeck of Grand Rapids.
