He was a proud veteran of the United States Army, serving at White Sands Missile Range in Alamagordo, NM, and he played for the Army basketball team that traveled around the county. He worked in the banking industry and was a bank examiner in New Mexico. Most recently, prior to retiring, he worked at Roma Savings and Loan and Investors Bank in NJ. All who knew him and loved him will remember his love for his church, his infectious smile, enthusiastic laugh, genuine enjoyment of sports, his never-ending energy and love of life!
