Otto enjoyed sports, especially NASCAR and football, and he loved to jam on his guitar and his harmonica when he had time.  He also loved cars and in his younger years, he traveled extensively designing and setting up storefronts across the US.  Most of all, Jorg will be remembered as a hard worker who enjoyed not only loved his family and friends, but the many customers he came to know on a regular basis over the years spent at Maxi’s.
