During his career he obtained seven patents.

He was an incredibly active HAM radio operator, a member of American Radio Relay League, as well as RAGS and LARC. He enjoyed photography, cats, animals and bird watching.

He was predeceased by his wife, Helen.

He is survived by his children, Stephen of Bristolville, OH and David (Susan Esce) of Manlius; two granddaughters, Kim and Ravyn Powell; and three great-grandchildren, Christopher, David and Kate.
