He lived in Wareham and worked as a plumber and plumbing inspector. He was very involved in his church teaching and leading bible studies and Sunday school and later went on to become an ordained pastor who performed the marriage ceremonies of his two younger children.
He was an avid stamp collector; he loved studying his bible and sharing it with everyone he knew. He loved his weekly breakfast dates with his daughter Peggy at The Narrows Crossing, and he loved watching sports and taking long car rides with his son. He adored and was incredibly proud of his grandchildren and great grandchildren and loved nothing better than when they came to visit. He enjoyed his weekly card games with his sister and friends, and he loved his little cat that became his constant companion in the last few years. He kept his sense of humor and positive and loving attitude until the last moment.
A memorial service will be announced at a later date.
