As a young man he started work selling shoes in a department store which is where he met his lovely wife , Marlene. He then went into the cement business, and ended up spending his career in that business. Some of his greatest accomplishments was the cement that he sold to help with the base of the Seattle Space Needle, and the "Big Dig" out east. He started with Colombia Cement and ended his career with Glens Falls Cement company. He married the love of his life, Marlene, who passed in 2017. He is survived by his daughter Shelly (Husband Stan) and son Mark ( Wife Rita).
