He loved truck driving and took on several business ventures the latest and most successful of which being S&S Paving Co., Inc. which he operated along with his sons. Even after he retired from the company he enjoyed being on the job with his sons and employees, meeting customers, and joking with those he rubbed shoulders with along the way.
