He had a long successful career working for FM Global and owned his own fire loss prevention company, Firetech.

He enjoyed his vacations in June for his birthday and hunting season in November. It wasn’t uncommon to find him working in his home office with two monitors- one with a game of solitaire and work on the other monitor. He loved to read the Sunday papers, sports news and he had a great talent in woodworking from porch furniture to kitchen paper towel holders. Family always came first for him and he exemplified that during his life with his care of parents and sons.
