For over 5 decades, he successfully owned and managed a farm with livestock and crops. He worked for McHugh Dealership from 1989–1999. He was an avid outdoorsman, hunter, and fisherman. He also loved to play pool, cards, tell stories, stretch the truth, do the jitterbug and spend time with his adoring family.
