He had also been on the varsity wrestling team at Fabius Pompey middle school. He enjoyed playing baseball with several summer leagues as well traveling teams.

He had been a line cook and then a sous chef at Pappagallo of Fayetteville where he was truly beloved by the staff and customers alike. He had most recently worked in field sales for Erie Construction Company.
