He worked his way up the ladder and eventually became General Manager, retiring after 27 years of service. He made many friends at work through the years and always gave back to others and his community.

In his free time, he enjoyed spending time with family and friends. Every Sunday, for the past 35 years, his family has gathered for lunch. These weekly meetings has kept his family’s bonds tight as they shared each other’s experiences from the week prior. All the conversations and advice given over these years will be cherished.
