He worked for various construction companies and he finished his working career in the coal mines, where he worked for 20 plus years.
Bum loved spending time outdoors hunting and fishing with his grandsons. Drinking Coffee with his boys was his world. He never missed his grandsons’ sporting events; he was very proud of all of them.
