He worked for the Union Pacific Railroad until his retirement in the 1970s, when he began his second career as an orchardist managing the last operating apple orchard in Otis Orchards. He was a devout Catholic and an active member and benefactor of Saint Joseph's Catholic Church, Otis Orchards. He volunteered at Spokane Valley's Sheriff Community Oriented Policing Effort and St. Vincent dePaul Society.
