In high school, he became a volunteer fireman for the Mitchell Fire Co. and achieved status as an Exempt Fireman, which he was very proud of. During the Korean Conflict, he was stationed in Japan. Upon returing, he married Jeanne Gudikunst and started a family. After working for many years on the NJ Turnpike, he went to work for PSE&G and retired after a long career.
