He was a corporate executive for aluminum manufactures, including Kawneer and was also a designer and metallurgist. He enjoyed his work and was proud of the life he was able to build from humble beginnings. Even in his later years he still continued to do consulting and design work. He held a number of patents through the years and was very talented at what he did. He was a World War II Army Veteran and served in the South Pacific.
