Prior to his 2011 retirement he had been a Supervisor at the Sartomer Company in Stratford for 30 years.  During the 1980’s he was a volunteer fireman of the West Haven Fire Department Hook and Ladder Company.  He relished time spent with his family. Playing and acting silly with his grandchildren brought him, and the kids, much laughter and pleasure.  He enjoyed spending time in his pool and chatting with his neighbors.
