Retired after 38 years of service with the U.S. Government – Pearl Harbor, he continued an active life helping at a plant nursery in Waimanalo, going fishing, traveling and visiting with family and friends, and cooking.

He could carry on lively discussions on various topics well past his 90th birthday.
