Tink had a passion for fun and adventure in his life. He never was one to miss out on trying something new. He traveled the world with his wife Lori and had just reached the 7th continent in January 2023. He always was embarking on something exciting, from bungee jumping to white water rafting to skydiving. He was the life of the party wherever he went, and his personality was contiguous and lit up the room. He was an avid Raider fan since childhood even though he resided on the east coast in his childhood days. His other passion were his animals, with his most recent addition of “Archie”, his golden retriever. He will be sorely missed by his family and countless friends.
A church service will be held at Santiago de Compostela Catholic Church, 21682 Lake Forest Drive, Lake Forest, CA, on September 19, 2023 at 10:00am followed by a Celebration of Life being held at a private residence.
