Built the museum of his dreams with his love Marianne Lumbard. An avid reader who enjoyed crosswords and sudoku along with conquering jigsaw puzzles. A legacy created with his previous wife Karen Hoyle: four children and three grandchildren (Mia and Logan Milchman and Shyla Hoyle). A private ceremony will be held for his loved ones.
