After retirement he was a pastor for 10 years at the First Brethren Church in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  He thoroughly enjoyed ministering together with his wife, Ellie, conducting Bible studies at nursing homes along with hospital and shut-in visitation through South Hills Assembly of God. His hobbies included hunting, fishing, gardening, and watching and feeding birds. In his later years he spent all of his time writing a book and was working on two others. He was happy and content with Savior God by his side.
