He owned and operated his own restaurant in Louisville for a short time but soon relocated to upstate New York. He worked at several local eateries including the Friends Lake Inn and the Owl of Twilight in Minerva.
He was a history buff at heart and spent many hours studying up on American History, specifically WWII and the Civil War. He was also a member of the Sleeping Giants Senior Citizen Club in Minerva.
He is survived by his mother, Betty Boos of North Creek; his siblings, Kathleen B. Quinn of Louisville, KY, Margaret Erickson and her husband, Thomas of Longmont, CO, and Andrew Boos of Louisville, KY, and Emily Durham and her husband, Joel of Clifton Springs; as well as his beloved nieces and nephews.
