Many of his years in Colorado he worked alongside his brothers and Uncle Bill at Kennedy Golf Course. He spent his career in the hospitality industry mainly as a chef but was a jack of all trades.

He enjoyed gardening and used many of the vegetables and herbs when he showed off his culinary skills while entertaining friends and family.
He is survived by his "adopted" daughter, Terrin Ziebell and her son Huxton "John" Wozniak.
He was preceded in death by his parents and brothers Dick and Chuck.
