He was a devout Seventh Day Adventist and Korean War veteran, serving in both the Army and Navy. While living in Georgia, he was a part of a traveling music choral, singing in many parts of the country. He worked at the Kettering hospital in California and retired as pianist for Ralph Avenue Baptist Church in Louisville, Ky., and Seventh Day Adventist hospital in Georgia, where he was a chef. His niece grew up learning to sing with him at many area churches. He touched many lives with his love for music and never missed the chance to sit down at a piano or organ if one was anywhere close at hand, including his last days while living at Autumn Woods.
