After closing the dairy in the late 1950’s, he entered into the field of law enforcement by becoming a security officer at Central State Hospital in Milledgeville, Ga. for a briefperiod of time.

garden and building birdhouses. He also enjoyed fishing and traveling. He and Pat had a placein Bryson City, N.C. for over 15 years and would stay there a good bit after they retired,
