I mean I understand why he fired me, I did take a lot off but I always gave him 3-4 weeks notice. But the thing that really made me mad was the way he reacted and what he said. I just felt like it was really unnecessary for him to say some of those things to me.

You do your job well.
Your boss writes a glowing recommendation, which is incredibly useful.
You take a lot of time off, which if you used your sick and/or vacation days, then he can't really say shit.
And now he's upset.
Sounds about right, to be honest, I would go to his office and rip up the recommendation letter, since if you put him as a reference on your resume, their probably going to call him, and if you leave a job on bad terms, that can basically ruin your career.
When an ex-employer can basically trash talk you for hours, it's happened to me plenty of times.
Since you don't work there anymore, it's up to you if you want to try and patch things up with your ex-employer, and I would give that a shot, can't lose anything, just lay it down, remind him that your quality of work was always excellent, if he won't here any of it, don't put him on your resume.
It's kind of hard to walk away from that, and it may be a bit difficult finding another job if you have no other references, but it's better then having someone always ruining your chance at a better job.
And to everyone who keeps repeating "Well, that's just how it goes, get used to it" That's not how it goes, and it never should, if the OP used his sick and/or vacation days, I would suggest speaking with HR about that, no one should be fired for taking time off that you are legally required to have access to, and if you didn't, and you just took time off, regardless of notice, there is nothing really to do here, move on and learn from it all.
Or cry, that works too.
