Then later riding his recumbent bike many miles in his nineties.
Another passion was baseball (St. Louis Cardinals) and the Pittsburgh Steelers. They were his favorite teams to watch and criticize. He may not have showed a warm and fuzzy side, but he loved and cared about family and friends. Chick will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.
