He dedicated 26 years in the service. He married Kathleen July 12,1971, in Bay Minette, Alabama. He took on the father role to Kathleen's children.

He then took early retirement and came back to Pensacola, Florida, where he eventually got a job with STS Engineering in 1998. He survived his 1st wife's death in 2013 and continued to work for his family. As the years went by, he met a beautiful woman named Wannakhon, and jokingly asked if she needed a boyfriend. From there they grew a wonderful friendship. The caring between the two of them grew and on August 28, 2020, they got married in Mobile, Alabama. They bought a house together in Pensacola, FL. As they were building their marriage, he became ill where she took on his care. He had to quit working and she was by his side at the time of his death.
