He then went on to do his dream job of traveling all over the east coast in a big rig! He enjoyed occasionally bringing home seafood and live lobsters for friends and family.

He joined the Port Huron Yacht Club in 1998 and was an active sailor. He loved his “big” boat Shanarisa and took many cruises on her with friends and family.
