He completed two tours of duty in Vietnam flying F4 Phantoms off the USS Enterprise. After retiring from the Navy, he flew for Western Airlines and eventually for Delta Airlines. He retired in 2000 and became a full time Grandpa. His faith was a big part of his life. For decades, he was a parishioner of St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church in San Ramon, CA.

His favorite times included vacations to Hawaii and the Sierras. He played Santa Claus for 18 annual Christmas breakfasts.
