He moved to Baltimore, Maryland where he worked in the trucking industry until he retired in 2019. He returned home to Virginia where he lived steps away from the beach to enjoy his hobbies of fishing and listening to music as much as he liked.

He was a beloved father, brother, son, uncle, grandfather, and a friend to so many. He never met a stranger!
