Wing devoted his life to family and others and especially enjoyed traveling the world with his beloved grandson, Justin.  Theirs was and is an exceptionally close connection.  He was always on the cutting edge of technology as evidenced by his many relationships with young people.  Wing’s passions included the simple pleasures of life…  Fishing on Hemlock Lake, tending to his beautiful yard, tinkering in his garage or basement, being an avid reader and loving food.  Wing touched and enhanced the lives of all that he met.
