He liked nothing better than watching his mama cook. He also enjoyed watching cartoons, playing legos and dressing up like spiderman. He hiked the brown, green and red mountains. He was a prolific artist and produced hundreds of drawings with pen and paper. His favorite foods were sardines, watermelon, vanilla ice cream and chocolate. He also enjoyed a good glass of milk.
