He secured his pilot’s license and began working as a crop duster in Texas. After he lost his wife, he moved to Wichita, Kansas to work as a plumber, which led to his job as a welder for a manufacturing company which he did for many years before retiring. He enjoyed collecting model cars over the years and had an impressive collection. He moved back to Missouri a few months ago.
