He retired from Sherwin Williams as a regional sales representative. He was a member of the ‘Knights of Columbus’ for 70 years. He was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Grayling, Michigan for 38 years.
Family was most precious to him, so he lived his life as a positive role model for the generations created by his union with his wife Joyce. Dad always had time to listen and give advice. He made it clear to all that Joyce was his number one love, that marriage was sacred, and respecting one another was the key to a blessed life.
