Following the war, he worked for General Electric, Endicott Johnson’s, and retired from management in IBM in 1984. He had a lifelong passion for the outdoors, always keeping a meticulous garden and hunting with the best beagle “in the county.” He not only organized area Little League and Babe Ruth baseball teams, but coached them as well and arranged for transportation for all the boys involved. He will always be known for his unique polka style. He was a member of Our Lady of Good Counsel in Endicott.
