He was a meat cutter for many years with the A&P, and Great American supermarkets. He liked to fish, camp and have a Genny beer. He became disabled early in his years with heart disease. Later in life, he became an amputee who managed to continue to live on his own, the way he wanted. His network of family never let him down.  He loved his computer games and watching his movies on Netflik (that's what he called it)  We will all miss him very much. Services are private.
