He started as a stevedore, and moved up through the ranks, retiring as manager of the CSX rail yard in Framingham, MA, when he retired in 2000. In addition to his devoted wife of 50 years and son, he leaves his three grandchildren, David John, Matthew James and Ryan Christopher. He leaves his brothers Kevin and Craig, and sisters Sally Wilson and Cynthia Doud, all from New York and many nieces and nephews.
