The man. The myth. The legend. Loved and respected by anyone that had the privilege of meeting him, he treated everyone like family. He was a wise man who was always prepared for anything. His mission was to selflessly put others first before himself especially his wife and family. He led operations at GE for 31 years until he took to his passion for painting & wallpapering from a part-time job to a full-time career.
