He was an engineer for General Electric for 38 years, retiring at the age of 55. After retiring, he could be seen riding around his property on his four-wheeler, taking care of his apple and pear trees. He was a friend to all the deer in the area, making sure they were well fed especially in the depths of winter. His late German Shepherd, Tara, was well known to all that needed to approach his home and will surely be guarding him once more.
