He was a member of the Sheet Metal Workers Union Local 16 and later went on to own and operate his own business, Climate Center Company, for many years. After retirement he loved playing Texas Hold Em on his computer and was a big fan of the Seattle Seahawks, Seattle Mariners and Portland Trailblazers.
