He was a plumber, ran a knitting mill with his brother, Fred, and a gift shop for a number of years in Vermont. He was the patriarch of his family, a protector, and a good caring man.

Bushmann of Hendersonville, and Jonna Brazell of Wilmington, MA; a son-in-law, Mark Brazell; four grandchildren, Chelsea and Alexander Bartlett, and Devyn and Ian Brazell; inlaws, Fred and Elizabeth Grosskreuz, Richard and Christine Grosskreuz and their daughters.
