He was vice president of Urner Realty, then associated with Locations. He met Sherree at St. John Lutheran Church and married her in 1979. In the 80's he went to work for Certified Management as a property manager. He facilitated an employee stock buyout with two partners, then become sole owner. He sold to Associa and retired after completing his five year contract with them. He enjoyed golf, talking story, trading stocks and fine red wine. The family will return some of his ashes to his beloved Kailua Beach in a private ceremony and some to "Grandpa's bridge" in Portland later this year.
