He was the assistant manager of Birchtree Manor Apartments and the Lancaster Stone Company Inc. He graduated from Conestoga Valley in 2009. An avid outdoorsman, he loved hunting and enjoyed going on numerous hunting, fishing, and snowmobiling trips with family and friends; he was an active member of the Beulahland Hunting Club and was a devoted Flyers and Eagles fan.
