He proudly served his nation as an officer in the United States Coast Guard, achieving the rank of lieutenant. During his sea service aboard the USCG McCulloch, he rode out one of the most severe storms ever experienced by a Coast Guard Cutter in the North Atlantic, off the coast of Labrador, during which a crewman was lost, most of the Cutter’s on-deck equipment was swept away and multiple decks were cracked.
Following active duty service, he served in the USCG Reserves until 1973. With his wife of 54 years, Elizabeth M. Kolls, he resided in Connecticut for many years and was active in the insurance, banking, manufacturing and construction industries prior to founding his own firm, The Fiduciary’s Management Services Group.
