Born in Dunkirk, he moved with his family from Fredonia to North Amherst when he was 5. He began working in construction in 1978 after he graduated from Williamsville North High School.

He was a former officer in Buffalo Carpenters Local 9.
A natural handyman, he built his home and helped build homes for his sons and many friends.
Known for his quick wit, he enjoyed boating, golfing, skiing, playing cards and spending time with his family at Cayuga Lake and at their cottage on Conesus Lake.
He was a member of Watermark Wesleyan Church.
In addition to his wife, survivors include four sons, Thomas, James, Richard and Marshall; his mother, Helene; a brother, Robert; two sisters, Barbara Ashcroft and Eileen Beuler; and seven grandchildren.
