He was 84 years old. He was a graduate of Ithaca High School in New York and attended the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts. He worked as an industrial pipe designer until retirement.
He enjoyed fishing, football and woodworking. He was an avid LSU fan and never missed a game, albeit his mood was dependent upon whether those tigers won or not. He often spent time in his shop creating beautiful wood art which he often shared with family and friends. Away from home, he enjoyed spending time with his many friends at The Wharf.
