He worked previously at Purolator, Access-A-Ride and the Coca Cola Bottling Co. He was known by his coworkers for being kind, gentle and funny.

He was known most for his impeccable New York fashion and style. A true son of 1980’s New York City, he loved to wear his gold jewelry, necklaces, bracelets and rings. He was the definition of “cool” and “fly”. He also loved to have fun. His children, nieces, nephew and their friends could always count on him to take them to all of the fun places: Rye Playland, Coney Island, Six Flags, Sesame Place, the bowling alley and movie theatre. He also enjoyed going to comedy shows, concerts, live plays and traveling.
