He had a successful career in aircraft maintenance, then became a flight engineer. He performed flight engineer duties on KC-97, C-124 & C141 aircraft, before retiring at the rank of Master Sergeant from the Air Force in 1969. Post Air Force, he was engaged in several careers. He sold real estate for a while. He was the proprietor of Bob's Grocery in Petersburg. He also owned Air Base Car Sales and Salty Sarge Seafood, both located in Dover. Finally, he owned & operated Salty Sarge Military Surplus Sales, in Felton. His passion was for hunting, and generally being outdoors.
