He was a paperboy, owned a gas station at the corner of Genesee and Transit with his brother, was a volunteer firefighter in Bowmansville and served in the United States Army in Germany. Flowers are gratefully declined and donations should be made to Epiphany UCC, 9365 Clarence Center Rd., Clarence Center, NY 14032 (Mortgage Reduction Fund).
