He received confirmation into the Catholic Church on the same date as his baptism at age thirteen.

He worked his way through the ranks and retired as a training instructor for the Federal Bureau of Prisons at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Glynco, Georgia.

Huckleberry picking and mushroom foraging in the summer and hunting in the fall are activities on his property in Pennsylvania.
