Boy served 2 years in the Maryland National Guard, Cambridge Unit. In 1980, his love and respect for the water led him to be a commercial waterman where he captained his beloved boat the “Gloria J”.  Boy loved to spend time in his “workshop” and could always be found outside working on one of his many projects. His love for the Lord led him to be a life-long member of Madison United Methodist Church, as well as his regular attendance of “Early Morning Service” at Grace United Methodist Church.
