He loved Dancing and his 'oldies but goodies' music. His favorite team was The Raiders, as he used to say "Battle of the Bay!" The day he left us, he was watching them beat my team the 49ers (beginning of the season you got that win). His favorite dish was cabbage, fried chicken and cornbread. That was his Sunday dinner and he loved him some fish. We used to have cook offs, and he just knew his chili was the best. Let us also not forget his Peanut Butter Cookies and his famous Peach Cobbler. He had to put his Culinary skills to use he went to school for It!
