An Amherst resident, he enjoyed hunting and fishing and guided a number of big-game expeditions in northern Canada. A woodcarver and a master craftsman, he was known for his Tiffany-style lamps.
Survivors include his wife of 68 years, the former Angela Iatonna; two daughters, Louise Moskowitz and Anita Rosa; and a son, Bud.
