In 1978 at the age of 28, while he was an orthodox believer, he accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior and was baptized in water.

In 1983, he married Anie from the Palamattam family, Mepral. In 1986, he joined the shipping corporation of India job in Andaman as the signal superintendent at Port Blair. That year, God blessed them with their first child, Susan.

He was a strong believer and always tried to glorify the name of his Savior through his life. He was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather as well as a dear friend to everyone who knew him.
