Upon his return from the Army, he obtained a degree from LATrade Tech and worked at Gray Bar Electric for a few years, until finally finding his place with Berg Electric as a Project Manager for 30+ years until his retirement.
He married Carmela De Palo in 1965 and settled in Burbank, to raise their three children, David, Jennifer, and Mark, who all have continued ties in the Burbank community.
