Following his discharge from the Navy, he continued his service to our country by working on Naval Contracts at Winchester Industries in Avon for many years. In later years he settled in a personally gratifying career, which he held for well over 20 years, as a Stained-glass glazier with Whittemore Durgin in Rockland. Being able to combine his artistic talents with his love for hands on construction offered such satisfaction and great rewards providing the highest quality to his customers.  He was well known for his ability to restore and repair pieces to their original beauty, and was sought after to create custom designs.
