He then applied those skills, working as an airline mechanic, flight instructor, jeweler, day trader, worked on the railroad and a commercial pilot for United Airlines for eight years. He also enjoying wearing cowboy boots and was a cowboy at heart. However, he will be remembered for his sense of humor, dancing in the kitchen and living life to the fullest.
