A man with a steadfast work ethic, he was a hardworking man and was a Boilermaker with Local 29 Boston, until he retired. If he wasn’t working, he was spending his time working in his yard, planting the garden, riding his tractor, or building his amazing Christmas light display. He got great joy out of doing things for others and bringing a smile to their faces.
