He worked at Y&O Coal Company and Mine Safety and Health Administration which is where he retired from in 2003 after 34 years of service.

He was a very social person and loved to be with people and laugh and make them laugh. He always had a story to tell anyone that would listen. He always had a smile on his face! He loved to travel and always had some place in mind that he wanted to go. He loved life and lived it to the fullest!

His favorite thing to do was to go to the Jewett Sportsman Club and visit and socialize with his friends. Those people will always be some of his favorite people. So a very special thank you to all of you…he so enjoyed spending time with you!
