He received his honorable discharge in May of 1960.

Dad worked at Conover-Mast Publication in NYC where he met his future wife Rena M. Loughan. They were married on November 17, 1962 in Poultney, VT where Rena grew up. They moved to Poultney in September 1965 to help with the family.

Dad went to work as a laborer with Finch Pruyn in May of 1966. He retired on December 1, 1996 as the safety director. He was a Little League coach for his sons Bob and Rick.

He enjoyed going to wings and beer on Wednesdays. He was an avid Yankees and Giants fan. He used to see Joe DiMaggio and all the Yankees, paid sixty cents to sit in the bleachers, and saw two games on Sundays.
