Over his many years he enjoyed cars, traveling, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, Radio Margaritaville, following NASCAR, the Boston sports scene, and catching up regularly with old friends. He vacationed annually in Maine, especially during his retirement enjoying Old Orchard Beach with Madeline, family, and friends, including Joseph A. Dauphin, his twin brother, who predeceased him in 2016.
