Born and raised in Attleboro, he lived in North Attleboro for most of his adult life before moving to Madison, Maine after retirement.

He served in the National Guard as a young man, alongside his brothers, Charles and Peter.

He worked at the Mason Box company in North Attleboro, and at Standard Chain in North Attleboro
for 32 years.

An avid sailor and hiker, he enjoyed the outdoors and led many adventures with family and friends to the mountains and lakes of Maine and New Hampshire. He was a bow hunter and fisherman, who was much more interested in the scenery and the company he was in, than what he took home.

A humble, kind man he was generous in all ways, and his family and friends will remember is sense of humor and loving manner.
