He also worked at the Women’s Hospital and retired from there as well.


He was a member of Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church and Boy Scouts of America. He was a member of the VFW Post in Lake Arthur. He loved to hunt, fish, shrimp and crab. He took great joy in teaching his children and grandchildren to enjoy the outdoors.   His grandchildren were his pride and joy. In later years he enjoyed bowling and scuba diving. His family will remember him as an awesome family man. Very rarely would a night go by that he wasn’t involved in a friendly card game with either family or friends. He was very supportive of the deaf community, going so far as to join a bowling league to spend more time with their son.
