As an electrician for Wicomico County Government, he earned respect for his intelligence and clean electrical work, and even wired the entire Salisbury Park Christmas displays. His career was punctuated by a sense of duty to his country, as evidenced by his honorable service as a U.S. Army veteran.

He will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him, but his spirit will live on through the memories he created and the profound impact he had on his family.
