He was a Veteran serving in the U.S. Army During World War II. He owned his own business Cortland County Sanitation for many years. He retired from Gutchess Lumber. He was well known in Cortland, NY. He was our beloved Father, Grandfather and Great Grandfather. He liked to tell jokes, chewing his tobacco, and had a great sense of humor.
