He was employed with Firestone Polymers as a pipefitter, then decided to partake in the cush job as a security guard who enjoyed the A/C. Later in life he began working for Dunham Price and remained there until his retirement. Retirement didn’t slow him down, he proudly took up the job as “Site Supervisor” to any job he accompanied his sons on.
