For more than 16 years he was executive director and later director of sales and marketing for a well-known, non-profit organization in Virginia Beach. He then returned to real estate and continued to work as a Realtor with William E. Wood until his death. One of his greatest enjoyments was sharing games of tennis with his friends each week.
