He was always interested in learning about people and imparting his wisdom to others. After retiring as a human resources executive, he took pride in his retirement job, teaching human resource management at Stevenson University and volunteering on the board of trustees at St. Elizabeth School. Teaching was his passion and he was incredibly invested in the success of his students. His greatest pride were his sons, and he enjoyed nothing more than spending time and being papa to his beloved granddaughter.
