veteran. After serving his country in the Navy, he was an owner and manager of several Ford franchises in Connecticut. After retiring, he moved to Shelter Island, NY, where he was a ferry pilot. In 1993, he moved to DeLand. Often called on for help and advice, he could fix anything and had a wealth of knowledge that he shared with his family.
