He was the ultimate first responder and one of the first paramedics in the Detroit EMS in the 1970's. He then graduated from both Detroit Police Academy and Detroit Fire Academy.
In 1987 when he moved to Fayetteville with his wife, Deon, he concentrated on Law Enforcement. He joined the Spring Lake Police Department in 1988 and rapidly advanced from Patrol Officer to Detective to Major to Assistant Chief of Police. He retired in 2001.
In 2005 from 2013 he owned Not Quite Antiques in Fayetteville.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Better Health of Cumberland County or to his sons' college education.
