He most recently retired from Ulster Savings Bank in Kingston in 2014 and he and his wife retired to Myrtle Beach, where they spent hours on the beach, enjoying their new passion of hunting for shark’s teeth. They only had seven glorious years together and were robbed of so many more by the deadly disease of cancer.
