He was a truck driver for the majority of his life, and also worked part time as a bartender at the Market Street Inn which was owned by his family. He married Joanne Smith on November 17, 1990, and the couple enjoyed 20 years of marriage before her passing in 2011. In his free time, he enjoyed gambling, watching the Green Bay Packers, and UFC. In his later years he never missed a meat raffle at the Duck Inn in Jefferson. Above all he enjoyed spending time with his family and friends.
