After retiring from the Navy, he worked as an electrician in the private sector at Lawrence and Memorial and The Eaton Corporation. God was preparing them both to become Pastors.

During the course of over 50 years of ministry, he had a total of nine church buildings in and around Southeastern CT. In addition to pastoring in the local church, he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from the University of CT. and was a Chaplain of the JB Gates men’s prison for 20 years. He has a legacy of birthing many ministers, pastors and teachers that are far reaching and even globally that are working in the kingdom of God today.

He lived life well and to the fullest and will be deeply missed by his family, friends and all who knew him.
